Learn How To Write A Novel By Reading Harry Potter By: Scott King & Clark Chamberlain

It’s refreshing to see something new in the writing advice community. Too often we see the same old advice repackaged and sold as something new and innovative. This is not one of those books.

King & Chamberlain bring something original by tapping into the depth of wisdom in Harry Potter. If you’ve not read Harry Potter—or didn’t enjoy the books—the lessons in this book aren’t for you. But, if you like millions of others who were moved, and even had their lives changed by Harry Potter, this book is for you.

Learn how to craft characters that feel more real than your family, plots twist you’ll never see coming, but seem so obvious after the fact, and so much more. J.K. Rowling is a true wordsmith and King & Chamberlain do a masterful job distilling her excellence into understandable chunks. Take the time to learn from the great.

This is a must read for any writer.
