    How to write commercial fiction

    A month ago, I decided to join Camp NaNoWriMo and start writing my first novel. I bought this book as a reward for meeting my word count goal. I decided that if I could stick it out and develop a writing routine for a month, then maybe I could maintain that discipline. I knew that what I had spewed forth onto the page so far need LOTS of work, so I turned Fiona McIntosh. Many of the books I've enjoyed reading this year were written by debut authors who have completed one of Fiona's Masterclasses. This book is a condensed version of that week long class. I would love to do a class with her one day, but I needed instant gratification, so downloaded the ebook. I devoured it in two sittings, though I will read and refer to it again, and again. (Was I repeating myself there Fiona, oops, I did listen, really). I loved the style it was written in. More of an informal biographical style, filled with anecdotes, rather than a textbook style. I could just imagine sitting in a class and listening to Fiona dishing out the tough love. This book covers many topics, from getting into a regular writing routine and setting word count goals to dealing with publishers. I highly recommend this book to other aspiring authors as well as published authors who are looking for tips from someone who is making a living from their writing. If you want to write commercial fiction, this is the book for you.
