Summary

The extended version How To Write A Full Length Novel In 90 Days...over 100 pages of a tried and tested system used by a successful thriller writer with 12 novels and a series of book marketing guides published since 2008!

Now the number 1 selling "writing skills" guide on kindle!

This concise guide tells you how to write a novel by using a systematic approach to writing.

This guide is written by an author not a “guru".

A simple step by step breakdown of how to plan each day.

No fillers and no theory, just the hard facts in a concise guide.

There are many guides about writing novels on the market but how many of them are written by prolific published authors? The answer is "not many".

How can anyone write a guide unless they have been through the writing process many times before? The simple answer to this question is they can’t because they cannot feed on their own actual experiences to help another writer to avoid the mistakes and pitfalls.

Most guides regurgitate information, which they have picked up from creative writing books or sites.

How can they give you advice when they have never sat down and focused on creating a novel, which will sell, many times over?

Writing a novel is the same as any other task we undertake as individuals. We have to learn how to do it in order to do it well. When you first learn to drive, you need lessons. No one walks into the kitchen and creates a gourmet dish on their first attempt. If you want a system to apply to writing a book, then you need to take advice from an “author" who has taken years to develop the process via experience.

Not UNABRIDGED as advertised

Would you try another book written by Conrad Jones or narrated by Paul Holbrook?

Not on the evidence of this audiobook. I bought the Kindle edition at the same time with the intention of following along as I listened. However great chunks appeared to be missing from the recording, including the key Planning and Structure Tips section.

What could Conrad Jones have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Include all the information from the Kindle edition.

How could the performance have been better?

The narrator spoke with an America accent when much of the subject matter was written from a British POV and several things were mispronounced.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

What was there was fine, but the problem was that much of the key information was missing.

Any additional comments?

Please change the UNABRIDGED to ABRIDGED. It is most definitely not UNABRIDGED.

It is an excellent concept

Any additional comments?

He has some great advice but..."it is easy for him to say...". I believe, I just don't have the imagination to create or the intelligence to present a story in an effective way. I don't care how many great techniques you may hear, if you don't have some degree of talent to begin with, no one can make you a successful writer. If you possess talent, you can profit from the techniques in proportion to the amount of effort and time you are willing and able to invest.

Wow! Lots of information in an hour!

Would you consider the audio edition of How to Write a Book in 90 Days to be better than the print version?

I have read how-to books but never listened in audiobook format. I HIGHLY recommend this method of learning! Or maybe it's just that Conrad Jones' book packs a lot of good information in an hour. While the title is a bit misleading--you gotta have the talent FIRST to write a book in 90 days--the narrator Paul Holbrook does a terrific job of pacing his speech to fit the rather dense content.

What did you like best about this story?

Author Conrad Jones does a great job of keeping your attention and keeping the content maneagable with short chapters and concise topics. The "bullet" approach is great way to remember what is heard.
The book's premise--writing a book in 90 days--is not so much how to write, but ideas on how to pace yourself and to not get discouraged.

What insight do you think you’ll apply from How to Write a Book in 90 Days?

I have school aged kids who write frequently in school, and the things I learned I have suggested to them. I have suggested that my 13 year old listen to this book as I think it will help her writing in general.

Any additional comments?

To keep with the previous comment, this book has some great ideas for creative writers, or any type of writer out there~

Not easy to listen to or follow

What would have made How to Write a Book in 90 Days better?

The book was a bit amateurish and did not flow easily. It was a struggle to listen to the narrator and glean anything from the book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Paul Holbrook?

The narration did not flow easily and was very difficult to listen to. The narrator had a strange accent, mispronounced many words, and his delivery was very choppy and amateurish, with unusual pauses and inflections. Within a few minutes I had to turn the book off and request my money back.

A useful guide.

Would you listen to How to Write a Book in 90 Days again? Why?

Yes, because it has many good pointers in it.

What did you like best about this story?

This book is written by a successful and prolific author who has used his experiences in an invaluable way, to produce a very good guide for authors.

The author started his career having to juggle a ‘day’ job with his writing, and so he fully understands the pressures writers are put under both personally, by others, and situations around them.

What does Paul Holbrook bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Paul Holbrook’s narration is clear, and compliments the books no nonsense style.

Any additional comments?

As well as the expected advice on the importance of doing your homework, building characters, word counts and targets, the book is full of good ideas to improve your writing. The author has included some really good examples of how, by making changes to your writing style, you can make the same story scene much more interesting, and how to increase the sales and marketing opportunities by adding ‘hooks,’ which link the book to specific places etc.

No-one can guarantee that you write a best seller, the original ideas have to come from you, however, the amount of advice given in this 30 minute audiobook is phenomenal.
