Write a Bestselling Thriller: Strategies to Get Your Book Published is a step by step guide to putting together an unputdownable narrative. It takes you on a journey through each component of the thriller, breaking the process down into key factors such as what a Hero really needs, creating Twists, ？Character-Development and Character Arcs, Plot Development and Structure, and on-the-page Style. The whole of the second part is devoted to the publishing process, from approaching agents to maximizing contracts, while the entire book features dozens of practical exercises to let you try the techniques for yourself. There are case-studies of both market-leaders and fresh voices in thriller-fiction, dozens of original writing-exercises which will get your writing moving and flowing, with the key ideas picked out and summarized for you to take forward as you read. Each chapter concludes with a reminder of the key points, and a round-up of what to expect in the next chapter, to both whet your appetite for what's coming and show how it relates to what you've read so far.
