When it comes to the bestseller lists, one particular genre stands tall. So much so, it’s probably seen as the most ‘respectable’.

It is, of course, the thriller.

Not only do thrillers make authors and their publishers very rich, they also make the most money in terms of film and TV rights, generating vast revenues worldwide.

Thrillers are also in hot demand for translation, serial and resell rights. Authoring a series of thrillers can literally catapult your career and your earning potential to the stars!

These days this is true even if you decide to self publish with Amazon. On any one day, a large number of Kindle bestsellers are fiction thrillers by independent authors! (Take a look at today's fiction top 100!)

But when it comes to traditional publishing, just look at the success of Dan Brown, Matthew Reilly, John Grisham, Jeffrey Deaver, Lee Child, James Patterson, Patricia Cornwell, Kathy Reichs, Richard North Patterson, Jonathan Kellerman, Michael Crichton, Sue Grafton, Sara Peretsky - the list goes on and on - all of these authors make a very respectable living crafting taut, psychological suspense fiction.

Wouldn’t you like to emulate the success of these writers?

Sure you would!

Now you can, the easy way. Welcome to: "The Easy Way to Write Thrillers That Sell"

Written by Rob Parnell - Kindle bestselling author - and "the world's foremost writing guru" - this new and fully up-to-date resource takes you through the critical basics of writing modern thrillers for publication.

From creating classic heroes and heroines, unforgettable villains, through research and plotting story, handling action, and building suspense into great denouements, to style, tone, credibility, etc, etc – in fact everything you might need to start a career in this exciting arena of commercial storytelling.

Whether you want to submit thriller submissions to traditional publishers or go it alone and create popular self published novels on line, this resource is most definitely for you.

Here’s a brief outline of the contents:

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great for first-time or experienced writers in this genre 26. Januar 2014
Von Peter Soderman - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I'm an engineer by trade (computer engineer) who recently published a self-help on Amazon, that's selling fairly well. It took me nearly four years to write, much of that time learning the actual craft of writing. I knew I was going to write another book when that one was done, and I finally decided that I was going to attempt writing a thriller. Why? because I enjoyed reading them, and I thought they would be fun to write.

I had a problem, though, looking at thrillers from an engineering standpoint. As opposed to many other genres, thrillers are very tightly plotted. It's the nature of the beast, and what readers expect. That means that it's not just a case of inventing two (or more) characters, setting them off on an adventure, and throwing-in various plot twists along the way. It doesn't work like that, at least not for me, and I don't think most writers.

I needed a method. Not a "formula," but a way to arrive at a plot structure that makes sense. My natural pragmatism served me well writing non fiction, because I could frame the structure in whatever way I thought would make sense to the reader. In this genre, however, no matter how many times I tried to make a conventional outline, it always ended-up so confused that I couldn't write from it.

What Rob Parnell's book did was show me that I was looking at the thriller from the wrong perspective. Instead of starting from the top with a neat indented outline all the way to the bottom, like my non fiction, a thriller is more like the root system of a tree. The tree at the top of the root system represents the ending, and the roots branch-out in all directions, some deeper than others, but all representing different plot points, sub plots, etc..

Much more powerful in diagramming a thriller than a mind map, Parnell's method resonated with me. It just made sense, right from the beginning. Rob's "upside-down" plotting method would be worth the cost of the book by itself, but there are also many other valuable lessons, especially for those of us trying to write in this genre for the first time. Building believable characters, doing research, marketing, and serialization concerns are only a few of the subjects he covers. I recommend the book to anyone who is looking for a way to stop spinning their wheels and start writing a thriller.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Basic Recipe for writing thrillers 4. Januar 2014
Von NuWriter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition
The Easy Way to Write Thrillers that Sell by Rob Parnell contains techniques essential to the beginner and useful for the experienced thriller writer. While some writers may be able to “write by the seat of their pants”, Parnell believes in outlining. He promotes the idea that good books, especially thrillers, must be planned out in advance with characters, research, settings and plot determined before the “hard work” of actual writing should begin.

As the title says, the emphasis is on the easy method and he demonstrates this through a simplified, three character thriller and develops a full outline with twists, actions, romance and violence. Beginning writers, like me, can use this simple model to understand the process and the components of the thriller.

Once you create your scenes, Parnell shows how to arrange, organize, expand, connect and sequence them into a cohesive whole by plotting from back to front. In addition, he discusses story elements and which are necessary, useful, or forbidden.

While it is a short book and there is some duplication, it does provide a basic recipe a talented writer can turn into a thriller.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Helps organize and improve writing of a thriller 5. November 2013
Von George Boucher - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
The Easy Way to Write Thrillers that Sell by Rob Parnell explains why certain details about characters must be available at the correct points in the story so readers can attempt to solve the thrillers plot and understand the actions of the characters in the story..
The book is short but also provides a method to organize the thriller and keep all the details in the right places in the time line so the plot unfolds in a manner that captures the readers attention and leads them through the story. The organization of the characters, detail and story solves the problem of keeping everything in order while writing the story. This organization will make thrillers or nearly any fiction book easier to write.
All in all it is a very useful book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great for plotting 13. November 2013
Von Lisa Cooke - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I just downloaded this and read it in one evening. I have 10 published novels and I've read countless books on writing in the last decade. It's rare for me to find one that gives me an "aha" moment like this one did. I loved the way he plots from the end of the book to the beginning even though he writes from the beginning to the end. He provides an example using a story he's making up as he's writing this book so you can see how it evolves. This technique could be used for any genre, but is especially good for mysteries, suspenses, and thrillers.

I wish I had read this book before my last one was published. I can now see so many things that would have made my story better. I will be using this technique from now on.
Good stuff.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good Beginners Book, But Read More Sophisticated How-to Tomes on Writing Too. 7. August 2014
Von Karen F. Duncan - Veröffentlicht auf
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I read the e-book and it had a lot of interesting tips for a beginner. It was long on inspirational padding and rather short on actual practical instruction. Parnell spends a lot of time telling his readers they can write a thriller if they will just stick to it and have discipline to follow through, something pretty much everybody should know by the time they are an adult.

While his instructions for using a template and plotting from the end to the beginning are excellent pieces of advice, especially for a thriller or mystery writer, where foreshadowing and leaving clues are crucial, his template is really not much more than a rough outline and synopsis. There's nothing original here. But the book is well-organized and if you are a newbie to genre writing, it offers enough useful tips that it is well worth reading and using as a starting off point. But read more about writing and read more sophisticated how-to books on the topic than this one.
