Currently Reading The Plot Whisperer by Martha Alderson

Fishished reading November 24, 2012.  Martha Alderson has put a lot of effort and thought into this book. Much of it is still sinking in. As much as we all need a good dictionary or thesaurus close at hand, reading this volume is essential for any writer. It will be in my continual reading category of some time to come. 5 Stars.


Have given the book one read through and will do so again before commenting. Definite keeper though!


I’m always looking for material which will help in my writing.

My copy finally arrived this morning. Looking forward to the read.
