MARTINA’S TIPS TO WRITE A KILLER NOVEL
Write for yourself.
Don’t try to copy other authors, because if you’re not interested, chances are an agent won’t be either.
It’s important you write what you want to read.
Don’t follow current trends.
The market changes quickly and, by the time your book reaches publishers, the popular genres may be different to what they were.
Listen to your instincts.
If you think an idea’s good, go for it!
It’s a small world, so treat everyone you encounter with respect – you never know when you might meet them again.
Never fear failure.
If you don’t try, you’ll never know.
