Your Novel This Month Release Day

Cue Panic, It’s Release Day

So I’ve finally started listening to everyone and put out a book based on my website. Your Novel, This Month is a beginner’s guide to NaNoWriMo, or writing a novel in a month (any month. It really doesn’t have to happen in November.)

What’s different about this book?

I’ve taken the familiar contemporary plot structure (Save the cat, Story Engineering, etc) and mapped it out over 30 days, explaining what you should be writing about each day, as well as what mistakes to avoid.

Isn’t that a little rigid?

Frankly, yes, but this book is intended for the first-time novelist who needs a map into this uncharted territory. I wanted a guide that will introduce beginners to “the rules” of novel writing with the intention that once they understand the basic structure, then they will be able to more effectively break from those conventions as their own artistic style emerges.

Who should read it?

The first-time novelist or the veteran looking to learn more about plot structure or pitfalls to avoid in their next novel. This book is an expanded version of my NaNoWriMo series of blog posts with a few added chapters for getting started and editing.

Where can I get it?

Right now it’s only available at Amazon in ebook format. You can purchase it or read through Kindle unlimited. I elected to skip the print for now because the complex formatting required for the worksheets and tables.

Here’s the link
