The author draws on 35 years of writing experience to show you how to develop this essential skill in an easily understood and practical book. Using examples from bestselling writers, he shows you how to create suspense through memorable characters, tight plots and linked sub-plots, using hooks, cliff-hangers and time limits. He also goes on to more advanced techniques such as foreshadowing and overlapping. A really useful book for popular fiction writers.
