Start and Finish Your Novel (and make it incredible)

Recommended Posts

Hi Writers,

Let me guess: you’re working on a novel, but struggling to finish it.

Or maybe you’ve got a first draft and need guidance for revision.

I can help.

I’m John Matthew Fox, and I help fiction authors write better novels.

I gathered up the wisdom from fifteen years of editing novels, writing books of my own, and creating nine writing courses, and put it inside a book: “The Linchpin Writer.”

You should get this book if you want to:

  • Start or finish your novel
  • Write a novel that readers will squeal and swoon over
  • Get help revising your book

The book focuses on all the crucial points of your novel:

  • First character descriptions
  • How to surprise a reader
  • Ending a chapter
  • How to create emotion in a reader

And it gives advice on how you can write your first draft or revise what you’ve already written.

If you’re a beginning writer, this will guide you through the writing process. And even seasoned authors with a few books under their belt told me they learned quite a bit.

I don’t just repeat the typical writing rules: I teach you how to break those rules.

And I don’t just give you a formula: I give you lots of examples that will inspire a variety of storytelling shapes.

But don’t just trust what I’m saying. Read reviews:

“I have read a lot of books on writing and editing fiction over the years, and this is one of the best.” – Jennifer Denver

“The Linchpin Writer was terrific writing advice that made me want to drop everything and throw open my notebook.”
– Audrey Bishop

“Most craft books are quite prescriptive, sometimes vague, and often not all that valuable. John Fox’s book was entirely different. I’ve been writing for 15 years, and I took more away from this book than I have from any craft book I’ve ever read.”
– Kieren Westwood

So, here’s a little bit more about me. I am …

  • A developmental editor: I’ve edited hundreds of novels, helping my authors get selected as a Kirkus “Best Book of the Year” and sell as many as 90,000 copies.
  • A guide for writers: More than 20 million writers have visited my website Bookfox.
  • A course creator: I offer 9 writing courses on topics like writing your novel, crafting fantastic dialogue, and writing gorgeous sentences.
  • An author: My books include “I Will Shout Your Name” and “The Linchpin Writer.”

If you’re still not convinced, I’ll sweeten the pot:

Buy this book before the end of the year and I’ll give you a free course on Point of View.

That’s right, a free mini-course going through things like psychic distance, unreliable narrators, variations in omniscient POV, and how to overcome the limitations of your chosen point of view.

All you have to do is order the print book or ebook, then email me the screenshot of your purchase confirmation, and I’ll give you access to the course.

Book + Course = Genius-Level Writer

Buy the book right now.

Happy writing!
