Interested in writing but don’t know how to get started?

Love reading and want to know more about how stories are created?

Like ridiculous tales about troublesome sisters, peanut butter and steamrollers?

Look no further!

Esteemed writer Richard Scrimger is here to answer all your burning questions about writing: whether about plot, character, structure, story hooks or commas. (Actually, don’t ask him about commas, it’s not that kind of book.)

Using clever (so he thinks) analogies, (sort of) brilliant examples and funny (well . . .) anecdotes, he will give you (truly) useful tools to start you on your way as a writer. And if that’s not enough, comic illustrations by D. McFadzean are the pepperoni on the writing pizza! (That will make sense once you read the book.)

So come, read this book and start your writing journey!
