If You Want To Write A Novel

Hello. If you're reading this post, you probably want to write a novel.

Fantastic! Now, keep reading.

I am L. R. Farren. I have recently published my first novel, independently of course. I am one of three out of a hundred would-be authors who embarked on a long journey to write a novel, and actually published it.

The title of my debut novel is From Bad Girl To Worse. Click on the link and see for yourself.

Have I sold any copies? Yes. But that's not important right now. What is important? The positive feedback I received from the editor every step of the way through the editing process. Take a look at some of the glowing feedback in the quotes below.

"What a compelling novel! You have a great deal of talent for storytelling."
"The characters were vividly drawn."
  "You pull the readers right into the story!"

Just about every author would love to receive such positive comments, especially on a debut novel. You would probably love to craft a novel that evokes this kind of acclaim, especially from your editor. Well, here's some good news.

You can!

If I can do it, so can you.  

On my long journey of studying the craft of writing, I have encountered a ton of negative, misguided and just plain wrong information. The internet, and even the bookstores are full of it. Most of the information either left me with more questions than answers, or so discouraged that I would vow to never pick up a pen and even write one word of story.

I was once in your place. I had a grand dream of writing a story that contained the firepower to change how a person thinks. For years, I dreamed of writing a story so compelling that my readers would tell every one of their friends to run to the nearest e-reader and download my novel. 

Trouble was, I had no earthly clue how to do it.

Then, I found a way to make my dream come true. And several years later, I get to see my work published on Amazon, Barnes and Noble NOOK, Kobo and Apple iBooks.

If you're still reading this post, my guess is you desire to write and publish a novel so bad you can taste the pulp of your newly printed paperback.

How would you like to be one of the three percent of authors who successfully publish a novel?

I can help you get there. No misinformation. No empty promises. No nonsense.

I will be writing a series of posts, aptly titled "How To Write A Novel Readers Love", where I'll share with everyone who is interested the steps I took to go from the faint idea for a novel to a full length published story that agents, editors, publishers and readers might well fall in love with.

Stay with me. You'll not want to miss the information within these posts.

We'll talk soon.
