Writing the Blockbuster Novel

Albert Zuckerman, legendary literary agent, has worked with many bestselling authors, including Ken Follett, Olivia Goldsmith, Antoinette Van Heugten, Michael Lewis, and F. Paul Wilson. Zuckerman is a master at teaching writers the skills necessary to crack the bestseller list. For this revised edition of "Writing the Blockbuster Novel," Zuckerman has added an analysis of Nora Roberts's "The Witness," which he uses along with classic books like "Gone With the Wind "and "The Godfather, "to illustrate his points. Zuckerman's commentary on Ken Follett's working outlines for "The Man From St. Petersburg "provide a blueprint for building links between plot and character. A new introduction discusses social media and self-publishing."Writing the Blockbuster Novel" is an essential tool for any aspiring author. As Dan Brown said in an interview: "Not long ago, I had an amusing experience meeting the author of a book I received as a gift nearly two decades ago a book that in many ways changed my life. I was halfway through writing my first novel when I was given a copy of "Writing the Blockbuster Novel." [Zuckerman's] book helped me complete my manuscript and get it published. [When] I met Mr. Zuckerman for the first time. I gratefully told him that he had helped me. He jokingly replied that he planned to tell everyone that he had helped me write "The Da Vinci Code.""
