Research for Fiction Writers - Where to Find It, How Much is Enough, and Avoiding Common Mistakes
If you want to write good fiction, there’s no getting around it: you have to do research. If you don’t do enough, readers (and reviewers) will let you know it. If you do too much, you’ll bury your plot and never finish your book. Julie Klassen will share lessons learned as an author of twelve novels, and from her twelve years as an editor for Bethany House Publishers, to help you avoid research pitfalls and bring your story to vivid life.
