From the publisher

Yes! No! But Wait…! is the most straightforward book on writing a novel ever published.

It is also the most practical, honest and useful.

Tim Lott admits he can’t teach someone how to write a novel (that’s one of the myths propagated by the novel-writing industry).

But he can help anyone construct a solid platform on which they can stand to discover whether they have the talent, will and imagination required of any novelist.

A distillation of a lifetime’s reading, writing and thinking about stories and how to tell them, Yes! No! But Wait…! is the one book any aspiring author needs.
