Writing a Killer Thriller: An excellent resource for all writers from Jodie Renner

Here is my five star review on Amazon for the e-booklet “Writing a Killer Thriller” by experienced freelance editor Jodie Renner.  At only 99c it’s a reference that all writers should have.

As a writer with one published novel, I am still learning, and constantly referring to my stash of books about the craft. There are many of them, of varying quality, and most are not designed for easy reference. So I was delighted to find that WRITING A KILLER THRILLER, by experienced freelance editor Jodie Renner, has filled a niche. It is brief, with lists and just enough narrative to remind you of the key elements you should focus on in writing a thriller novel. It uses other excellent reference sources which themselves are worthwhile buying. I would suggest that many of the principles Jodie lists are relevant for other genres, too – tension, conflict, snappy dialogue, characterisation are all essential in any great novel. On that basis I would recommend this resource to all writers. I’ve printed out my copy, because I prefer having it on my desk. Jodie’s e-booklet is concise, precise and a great price! Can’t wait for the next volume in the series.
