About the Book:

Many people feel they might have a book in them — but how do you know whether you have what it takes to be a writer, whether your writing is any good, what you should write about and whether you should dedicate proper time to begin your dream? This book asks pertinent questions of you via a questionnaire to help you discover whether there is a talented writer in you.

Each chapter provides background to the relevant point in the questionnaire. Packed with advice from experienced writers including known authors; P.D. James, Philip Pullman, Jacqueline Wilson, Margaret Drabble, Katie Fforde and more. Expert advice from Daniel Roche (BA President), independent booksellers, publishers Helen Fraser (Penguin) and Ian Trewin (Chairman Cheltenham Literary Festival and administrator, Man Booker Prize), agents and creative writing tutors. Foreword by columnist and writer Katharine Whitehorn.

If you're thinking of becoming a writer (or live with someone who longs to be published) this book is a useful investment before you give up that day job!

What people say:

"I'm completely hooked. It is, in fact, very inspiring. I think the front cover is great: striking, visually and appealingly economic. I hope the book is as successful as it thoroughly deserves to be. I will be buying more copies for acquaintances who keep asking me if they should write a book. It will save a lot of time." — Nicholas Allen, bestselling children's author of The Queen's Knickers

"I am very impressed. It's not so much an instruction manual as a huge consultation panel drawn from a whole range of different experts and I can't imagine any writer, aspirant or established, not finding it absorbing and enlightening. The Questionnaire gives it real punch, and I thought the section on 'is there not a book in you?' particularly heartening and intelligent." — Professor John Carey
