Présentation de l'éditeur

Whether you’re planning your first novel or revising your fourth, you’ll discover lots of concrete ideas here for taking your fiction up a level or two, captivating readers, and gaining fans. Both published and aspiring authors of fast-paced, popular fiction will find these tips indispensable for plotting a riveting story and creating compelling characters, then writing a gripping opening and designing suspenseful scenes. And the reader-friendly format makes it easy to zoom in on specific advice, with examples, for picking up the pace, ramping up the tension and intrigue, revising for power, and creating a page-turner that sells.

Praise for this revised and expanded WRITING A KILLER THRILLER:

“Finally, someone who understands the thriller! More than ever an author must also be his own best editor and Jodie Renner is there to help. Writing a Killer Thriller should be on every thriller writer’s desk. It breaks down the thriller into its must-have component parts to write a scintillating, edge of the seat novel that will get readers buzzing and sales flowing.”
~ Robert Dugoni, New York Times bestselling author of The Jury Master and Murder One

“Writing a Killer Thriller by Jodie Renner is an in-depth journey through each component of the thriller. Renner breaks down the process into key elements, each essential to keeping the reader turning those pages. From character development to building suspense, Writing a Killer Thriller should be on the desk of every thriller author out there. A staple for the beginner, a refresher for the pro.”
~ Joe Moore, #1 Amazon and international bestselling co-author of The Blade and The Phoenix Apostles

“Writing is hard, editing harder, and self-editing almost impossible. Writing a Killer Thriller demystifies each of these steps on the road to a published manuscript. Read this book. It will help you now and for many years to come.”
~ DP Lyle, Macavity Award winning and Edgar, Agatha, Anthony, Benjamin Franklin, Scribe, and USA Best Books nominated author of the Dub Walker thriller series

“A killer of a thriller guide! Jodie Renner lays out, in clear, easy steps and lists, how the best writers craft their works of art – and shows how you can do it, too. A terrific how-to in avoiding the pitfalls and burnishing the gotta-haves of writing a bestselling thriller novel, by an editor who knows her way around action, drama and creating characters so fresh and real you’ll swear they were your friends.”
~ Shane Gericke, national bestselling and No. 1 Kindle bestselling author of Torn Apart

5.0 étoiles sur 5 For every thriller author serious about perfecting their craft: this one's a must-read. 5 juillet 2012
Par Andrew E. Kaufman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
With years of experience as a professional editor to many successful authors, Renner knows what it takes to write a good thriller, and she lays it all out here in a no-nonsense, easy-to-understand manner. From building excitement and suspense on every page, to adding tension and conflict to each chapter, this book is packed with information you simply can't afford to miss if you want to gain that ever-elusive competitive edge in the world of fiction.
--Andrew E. Kaufman, #1 bestselling author of The Lion, the Lamb, the Hunted and While the Savage Sleeps

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Tight, Useful Information 6 juillet 2012
Par Amazon Reviewer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Jodie Renner's 40-page ebook, TENSION, SUSPENSE, & INTRIGUE - WRITING A KILLER THRILLER, is one to keep at hand while you're writing your next mystery or thriller. Readers of mystery fiction who are curious about the scaffolding that underlies a good mystery plot would also find this of interest.

Sure, I know most writers have a shelf of How To books guiding them. Lots of them pad the material, wasting considerable space giving long examples of a point. Not so, this one is tight, compact, and every page useful.

The amount of information on each page can be overwhelming and you slap your forehead thinking, "Yeah, if I could only remember all this." Renner makes it easier. The writing is short, punchy, and cohesive.

A series is planned in this format covering all aspects of the craft of fiction. I plan to buy every single one of them.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A MUST HAVE FOR ALL SUSPENSE/THRILLER/MYSTERY WRITERS 6 juillet 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Talk about setting a scene! I just downloaded Jodie Renner's TENSION, SUSPENSE, & INTRIGUE - Writing a Killer Thriller the other day, and have been taking notes (and making progress!) ever since. With this 40-page "booklet," Ms. Renner has not only created a direct, no-nonsense "road map" for all the essentials that go into writing tight, clean, thrill-filled fiction, but she has also given us a tiny can't-put-it-down offering that, most pointedly, gives glimpse into what every writer of thriller fiction should know, and most likely grapples with, in creating fiction that not only shocks...but SELLS. Whether aspiring, or a writer who is a bit more seasoned, this "little" offering is a must-have tutorial for any writer who seeks to be GREAT rather than just good. This will help get you to where you most want to go with your writing, but don't take my word for it. DOWNLOAD Ms. Renner's TENSION, SUSPENSE, & INTRIGUE - Writing a Killer Thriller...You'll be glad you did! And so will your readers!

To Ms. Renner: "Jodie, your directive not only fuels me to keep forging ahead with my own writing, but it has actually served to infuse me with the hope necessary, to BELIEVE I can actually make this happen for myself! As a first-time-out writer, I have taken countless bits of advice from this little booklet of yours. Saying thank you, seems to pale in comparison to what I truly feel. I can only hope that this little "jolt" of yours, will pay off in my ability to write compelling suspense fiction, that will soon entertain reading audiences worldwide. Until then, I guess offering a simple "thank you" will have to suffice. I'm so glad to have come across your little "writing class" in booklet form! Thanks again!" - Mark Parker, Boston, MA
