How to Write a Novel in One (Not-so-easy) Lesson

This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


After selling more than 90 novels and teaching writing to over 100 students, bestselling author Jacqueline Diamond shares her knowledge of the craft of fiction in this 24,000-word book (about 80 pages). You won’t find any one-size-fits-all schemes, just solid information with a personal touch, and tips organized to help you in any genre, no matter how much or how little writing experience you have.

The author of the Safe Harbor Medical series as well as mysteries, fantasy, romantic suspense and half a dozen Regency romances, Diamond has also created study notes targeted to sample chapters. These are geared to help writers analyze how to capture the tone and reader expectations of three different genres.

A former Associated Press reporter and TV columnist, Diamond has won a Career Achievement Award from Romantic Times magazine, has finaled twice for RWA’s prestigious Rita Award, and has hit bestseller lists including Waldenbooks and USA Today. Her more than 90 published novels have been translated into French, Italian, Spanish, Dutch, German, Turkish, Japanese, Norwegian, Greek, Swedish, Hungarian, Korean, Czech and Danish. She offers monthly ebook specials on her Facebook page, JacquelineDiamondAuthor.

Here are quotes from some of Jackie’s writing students:

“Your assistance has helped me gain my footing and develop enough confidence to begin writing as I always dreamed I could.”

"You've been a most encouraging instructor. Your comments have been insightful and easy for me to understand and learn from.”

“It’s hard to believe how much I have learned about the craft of writing in such a short time. There is no way I could have done this on my own.”
