Oh dear, I said to myself when I received Steven Harper's Writing The Paranormal Novel, I am not into writing about Vampires, werewolves, and zombies but so into wanting to write a damn good thriller.

And (like you, I'm sure) my dream is to write a bestselling thriller so anyone who can teach me and other aspiring thriller novelists how to do this with focused learning on writing of paranormal and supernatural thrillers, I'm up for that.

Writing a paranormal novel takes more than casting an alluring vampire or arming your hero with a magic wand. It takes an original idea, believable characters, a compelling plot, and surprising twists, not to mention great writing.

This helpful guide gives you everything you need to successfully introduce supernatural elements into any story without shattering the believability of your fictional world or falling victim to common cliches.

You'll learn how to:

  • Choose supernatural elements and decide what impact the supernatural will have on your fictional world
  • Create engaging and relatable characters from supernatural protagonists and antagonists to supporting players (both human and non-human)
  • Develop strong plots and complementary subplots
  • Write believable fight scenes and flashbacks
  • Create realistic dialogue for your zombies and werewolves and all your fictional characters

Complete with tips for researching your novel and strategies for getting published, Writing the Paranormal Novel gives you everything you need to craft a novel where even the most unusual twist is not only possible - it's believable. I am keen to brainstorm my own ideas for my first thriller to find a great plot twist.
