Skills like plotting, self-editing, and market sense can be learned. This book discusses not only the basics of such skills but also the fine points that make learning the novelists' craft a careerlong pleasure. The book is designed to show newcomers not only how to break in, but also how to answer for themselves such questions as "What are my chances?" or "If nobody agrees to read my material, how can I know whether it is any good?" or "Is it worth revising my manuscript, or should I move on to the next?"
