On Fridays (and every other day of the week, actually) Twitter fans share what they are currently reading, using the hashtag #FridayReads (there is also a website dedicated to “Friday Reads“and on Twitter @FridayReadsWin and Facebook). I wanted to share with you such an outstanding book that I am reading ~ the one I shared today on Twitter as my “FridayReads” selection.
This book is SO awesome, that when I found it in my library earlier this week, I of course borrowed it ~ but by the time I got home I promptly went online and ordered it. I HAD to own this valuable collection!
It is called Now Write! Mysteries: Suspense, Crime, Thriller, and Other Mystery Fiction Exercises from Today’s Best Writers and Teachers. It is edited by Sherry Ellis and Laurie Lamson, the editors of Now Write! Screenwriting.
The collection, which is published by Jeremy P. Tarcher/Penguin, is described on the back cover:
The essential handbook for writers of whodunits, techno-thrillers, cozies, and everything in between — featuring never-before-published personal writing exercises from some of today’s bestselling and most award-winning mystery writers.
Check out this list of contributors ~ and a few sample writing exercises.
So ~ I enthusiastically suggest that you borrow it from your library, order your own copy or e-version. You won’t regret it!
