Comments from reviews for Find the Magic:

“This book is exactly what I had been looking for. I am finally able to organise my 60,000 word novel, structure it, work out the theme and basically be able to finish it after putting it off for 2 years.”

“Includes some show and tell examples for clear understanding of the concepts presented. Will be one of my go-to reference books.”

“Excellent book. Simple, understandable guidelines that even I can follow.”

“This is the best guideline I’ve ever seen on how to get started with writing a novel.”

“Find the Magic will help you get that book written, and Alicia Dean is a master at explaining and encouraging from page one … all the way to the end.”

“I would recommend this book to anyone who is seriously pursuing a publishing career in fiction.”

“Her examples are excellent and I especially liked her ‘Extra Nuggets’ at the end of each chapter. Whether you’re beginner or advanced, this little book is a gem.”

About Alicia:

Alicia Dean lives in Edmond, Oklahoma. She has three grown children and a huge network of supportive friends and family. She writes mostly contemporary suspense and paranormal, but has also written in other genres, including a few vintage historicals.

In addition to being an author of more than twenty-five published works, Alicia is both a freelance editor and an editor for The Wild Rose Press, under the name, Ally Robertson, in their suspense line.

Other than reading and writing, her passions are Elvis Presley, MLB, NFL (she usually works in a mention of one or all three into her stories) and watching her favorite televisions shows like Vampire Diaries, Justified, Sons of Anarchy, Haven, The Mindy Project, and Dexter (even though it has sadly ended, she will forever be a fan). Some of her favorite authors are Michael Connelly, Dennis Lehane, Lee Child, Lisa Gardner, Sharon Sala, Jordan Dane, Ridley Pearson, Joseph Finder, and Jonathan Kellerman…to name a few.

Drama Club Calling

Drama Club 3
So lovely readers this week I have managed to have very little sleep. I am flat out with my FTDJ (full time day job), which is giving me palpitations about my lack of writing time. I have developed a guilt complex about not writing enough and am starting to feel I am a member of a real life drama club that I never pitch up to, hence the catchy title of this post –  like it? I knew you would! Continue reading “Drama Club Calling”
