Not to Write a Novel - Review†
How Not to Write a Novel is an acerbic look at the publishing industry by midlist author, David Armstrong. If you have a head-in-the-clouds would-be writer in your family, with no concept of the hard work part of the writing and publishing process, this is the book to get for them.
The appeal of mystery stories lies in their ability to make the reader feel both clever and baffled by the story. This also makes it a tricky genre to write, because the reader must be satisfied that there was sufficient information for him to solve the mystery, but still be surprised.
