The book begins by addressing the call on Christian writers to use their talents to best serve the Lord. Although each of the contributing authors are successful novelists, they offer expert advice without condescending tones, recognizing that every person called to write inspirational fiction has a unique and vital story to contribute. Drawing from their own experiences and observations about the craft, the authors explain how writers can harness their talents to please publishers, readers, and, most importantly, God. To illustrate the importance of helping new writers recognize their callings, the authors found inspiration in Galatians 6:4-5 from The Message, which says: Make a careful exploration of who you are and the work you have been given, and then sink yourself into that. Dont be impressed with yourself. Dont compare yourself with others. Each of you must take responsibility for doing the creative best you can with your own life. Encouraging aspiring writers to accomplish their creative best, the authors introduce a variety of resourceful ideas in each of the books four sections: Fundamentals of Fiction, Developing Your Craft, Writing Christian Fiction, and Networking and Marketing.
Overall, A Novel Idea offers inspiring help on prewriting techniques, story progression, punctuation, narration, and developing three-dimensional characters with believable goals, motivations, and conflicts. By the end of the book, readers will be foundationally prepared to write, critique, and market their work to the best of their ability. This book is a great resource for all Christian novelists who hope to improve their craft by learning from the best in the business. Kara Hackett, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
