Do you have stacks of “How-To” books explaining the inner workings of building a manuscript? I could have an endless stack of books like the picture above if my wallet were a bottomless pit of cash. There is plenty of knowledge out there for an amateur writer to devour and well worth the trouble of learning. What I hope to offer with my blog is a five part series about the many parts of a novel. In the coming weeks I will break down the many elements of a book between the covers. Stay tuned for my five-part series starting next week.
