How many times did you want to write your own novel but gave up the idea because you didn't have the required skills or knowledge?
It happened more times than you'd like to believe, right?
So let me ask that question once again. Do you REALLY want to write your own novel? Would you like to see a famous book published under your name? If yes, then stop giving up every time you come across this idea and be done with it. If you believe you do not know anything about how professional novelists write their novels, don't worry about it. This audiobook has everything you need to know.
This book, The Step-by-Step Guide to Writing a Novel for Fiction Writers and Novelist is a one-of-a-kind book. It is different from anything you would have listened to because it reverses the usual order of things. It does not teach you the same old tips and tricks. Instead the book divides the process of novel writing into six easy steps. Each step becomes a chapter that gives you complete insight and knowledge. It grabs you by the hand and takes you forward.
Listen to this book now and see for yourself. Learning how to write your own first novel couldn't get any easier than this.

It got to the point and stayed on point. There was no self-promotion/buddy promotion or fluff. It delivered the goods in a concise manner.
Two books come to mind. Million dollar outlines & Story, though not as concise, I make the comparison because both authors provided there readers with quantitative information that can launch a career or take it to that higher level.
The book maintained excellence throughout.
Yes, I found it delightful and refreshing. Each chapter covered the topic promised with no fluff, ego trips, or marketing.
If you are looking for a book that can get you started on your writing career while saving you time and money you've found it. No, lol, I don't work for Mr. Lucas nor do I know him (although I would not mind knowing him) I'm just an ordinary person sharing my impression of the book.
Touches some good points about a lot of things I wasn't sure about, such as the passive voice, and 1st and 3rd person narrations. How to show and not tell. Seems a little short, but nice to get some information from a man such as him.
Easy to follow the basics especially as one of initial books I read on topic. Did not confuse me with the exception of reading lists.. My 4 stars are because I felt the reader raced through lists. When I hear lists, I like to hear items with space around them. I had to stop and 'rewind' to hear them separately. otherwise, good purchase I can reference ahead...good for me.
The information is good, basic stuff. If you've taken a creative writing class, you probably already know everything this book touches on. If you've never written in your life, this book would be a good starting point.
The narration is below average. The guy doesn't enunciate well. I had to rewind a few times to get his meaning.
I love how practical, useful and motivating this book is. It's as though the author has taken the best notes out of a far more comprehensive book - giving you bullets of the most pertinent information. I have several books on my wishlist, but was worried about reading more than writing..and never quite getting started. I just listened the 1st time through - now I can go back and complete the exercises. I am very appreciative of this clever, concise - clean cut approach.
Short and powerful, this audiobook gives you "to the point" information that helps you burn in new habits to write better fiction.
The topics covered include character creation, plot, outlining, theme, syntax, and even contractions.
My only wish is that this was more in depth and used more examples. It is overall a great listen for the morning or evening commute.
you can get the same info on youtube for free. I was hoping for some personal account ts from GL life but it's just a cliff notes of your high school creative writing class.
"Short but incredibly helpful!"
Who better to get writing advice from than the man who penned Star Wars? This book may be on the short side, but with notebook and pen by my side I took plenty of notes. Even though I already write, Lucas still has nuggets of information to provide that will help any writer. A great book!
