Do you have a book idea, but the task of actually writing it is too daunting and has held you back? Jeanne Marie Leach takes the knowledge she’s gained over many years of research, writing, and publishing, and has arranged it in a step-by-step timeline and in an order most beneficial to beginning writers. This book gives beginners a springboard from which they can gain direction and understanding of the basic mechanics of writing a novel.
There are shelves filled with writer’s help books in today’s marketplace, but how does a beginning writer know what he or she needs in order to get started? Often the information we find at the library or online isn’t what we need at a particular time.

• A sample character chart

• Writing good dialogue
• Writer’s helps books that will enhance your writing
And so much more!
This book will give you the knowledge of writing a novel, and will then point you in the direction to continue on toward publication.
Whether you haven’t written a word, or you have almost completed your first manuscript, Writing Basics for Beginners will give you the direction you need to take the next step toward publication.
Jeanne Marie Leach believes everyone who has a book idea inside them can learn how to write it; they simply need to be shown how to begin. The task appears too large and overwhelming. This book starts at the beginning of your writing journey, and will give you the confidence and direction to see the book through to those final two words – THE END.
