Tips for composing your first novel (from a list of novels published)
I wrote 28 cookery books - but Island Apart is my first novel that brought all kinds of possible challanges. I felt like a rough rookie during much of the whole thing. Hell, for most of the trial, I was a crude rookie. There are two kinds of writer in the world: those who speak about novelists and those who actually do.
Draw up a model..... and a treaty. As I founded Island Apart, my missions were to use the abilities I had gained over the years in story and cookbook authoring; the contact I had made in publishers and the press; and the advertising experience I had learnt from tens of books on tour (and marrying a journalist - more on that in a prospective blog) to begin, compose and complete a novel that could be published within a year.
