I write mostly mystery but I’ve always had a bit of a fascination with fantasy but I thought there was no way I could write something like that so I was interested to see what A Fantasy Writers’ Handbook had to offer.
Written in a friendly conversational style, A Fantasy Writers’ Handbook offers advice on characters, world building and even editing.
Don’t be put off by the title A Fantasy Writers’ Handbook because there are plenty of practical tips on things like characters and plotting that are helpful to any wannabe author no matter the genre.
What made this standout for me was not only was there loads of writing advice, there were suggestions of extra reading on writing and editing which I really appreciated.
Like most writing advice books, not everything will work for you but writing is a learning curve afterall!
A Fantasy Writers’ Handbook is a well written and helpful book that I’m glad I’ve got a copy of on my kindle shelf for when I want to tackle a fantasy story in the future.

Great Handbook - Very User FriendlyReviewed in the United Kingdom on June 18, 2019
This is such a great and easy read. Full of useful hints and tips for any budding writer. The author is talking from experience and also uses tips he has picked up over the last few years on his journey. The style of writing takes you step by step through all aspects of writing and encourages you along the way. Very user friendly and highly recommended. The artwork on the front and back cover is amazing and a perfect complement to the book.

Great addition for all Author'sReviewed in the United Kingdom on July 9, 2019
This is an excellently crafted book with everything you'd expect from a how to handbook and more! Beginners and Elites alike can use this to further their knowledge due to its in-depth but easy-to-follow content. I already have numerous corners marked on the sections I need. From Cartography to Weapons to Active Book Reviewers, it has it all. It may say Fantasy on the front but in reality it covers all genres. Top Marks.

Not the worst effortReviewed in the United Kingdom on July 22, 2020
I always find it a little disconcerting when I read writing advice that is peppered with typos. I know the key is the message, but I think good advice needs to be well proof-read at the very least. How can we trust an author who can’t be bothered?
Extremely helpfulReviewed in the United Kingdom on June 27, 2019
An invaluable guide to help improve and check that your fantasy novel is on track. I would not hesitate to recommend this book to anyone writing fantasy.
