How to Write Crime

(1996)
A non fiction book by

 
Brought together by award-winning crime author Marele Day, twelve crime writers and readers give invaluable insights into what they do, what they look for - and how you can do it too. How To Write Crime shows you skills, techniques and short cuts and offers ways to solve problems that have helped the best-selling contributors in their careers. Exercises follow most of the chapters. Chapters such as 'Research', 'Plot and Structure', 'Character' and 'Dialogue' will help refine your skills; 'Taking Care of Business' will give you a headstart in the business of getting published; and 'The Reader's Point of View' should always be remembered. How To Write Crime is much more than a practical guide - it reveals writers at work and provides insights into how their books were produced. So, stop cleaning the fridge, sharpening the pencils and arranging the furniture - sit down, read this, and start writing!
