Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

If you'd like to turn a publisher's or editor's No into Yes, you'll find invaluable advice in No More Rejections. Each chapter is broken down into practical Secrets for thinking up original ideas, moving your story forward, developing characters with character, setting the scene, staying true to your style, and writing big bang endings.

Using critiques of actual manuscripts, Orr clearly points out how things get off track when the writing gets loose, the punches miss their targets, the characters fall flat, and the whole story meanders. Orr's advice and experience kicks in and she provides suggestions so that the original hook that had you so excited to begin your story does not get lost.
