A Novel in a Year

A Novelist's Guide to Being a Novelist

About The Book

From the author of APPLE TREE YARD, now a major BBC drama starring Emily Watson

Can you write a novel in a year?

If you simply sit back and think about the enormity of writing a book, it will seem like a vast and unconquerable task, impossibly daunting. The way to make it less daunting is to break it down into its constituent parts, to do it bit by bit. Over the chapters herein, different aspects of technique are divided up into bite size chunks, the better to aid digestion.

The book will look at different aspects of writing, with set exercises to help the reader along in their confidence and technique. It is designed to be read a chapter aweek, with the aim of the fledgling writer having a body of material at the year's end which should form a solid start to their novel.

Deeply practical, with sound advice at every stage, A NOVEL IN A YEAR is essential reading for any would-be novelist.
