Summary of this Book...
Don’t let the title of this book fool you. Yes, it is about outlining a novel but it is much more than that.

Although it starts with outlining whys and hows and goes into different style of outlines, it also makes you think about what kind of a writer you are and which type of an outline would fit your personality and makeup.

Still, this is not all but only the beginning. The author gives you an almost entire novel writing how-to from the opening image to the finale and the final image, from all the story elements like plotting, setting, timing, story goal, to characterization with the addition of a several good questions for the writer to ask himself along to way, plus character sheets and some serious advice for all genres, even about writing for children.

Saying more would be giving away a lot, but I found this book to be a powerful teacher and thus, I had to mention a few points inside it, so the writers who are contemplating in getting this book understand that they will have a carefully detailed book and who knows, they may need no other book on writing after giving close attention to this one.
This type of Book is good for...
Learning about novel outlining and overall writing.
I especially liked...
the specific pointers on the genres and the clear and easily understandable advice.
The n/a of this Book...
is John S. Warner
I recommend this Book because...
It is an excellent teaching book, almost a complete one on planning and writing a novel from a beginner and intermediate to possibly a writer who has already written a few novels.
Further Comments...
Just to be clear, I don't know this author and I have never met him. I don't know how but he found me last month and asked me to write a review for this book. I am glad I didn't turn him down because I now think very highly of this book. Of all the shelves and shelves of books I've read, this one is a gem, especially for beginning writers but also, probably, for all.
