Rated 5 out of 5 by from Buy this book--it's the nicest thing you'll ever do for yourself Chris Roerden’s book, DON’T MURDER YOUR MYSTERY: 24 FICTION-WRITING TECHNIQUES TO SAVE YOUR MANUSCRIPT FROM TURNING UP D.O.A., is worth my weight in gold. Roerden knows that agents and publishers are looking for excuses to reject manuscripts. This book is for writers wanting to improve the chances of their manuscript making it through the screening process and escaping the NO pile. It’s appropriate for writers in all genres—not just mystery. She has included numerous examples from published authors to demonstrate her tips (other books I’ve read give few examples & they are often taken from that author’s books). This book is comprehensive, well organized, and helpful—it is also entertaining and an easy read. Obviously, I consider this book the best of the lot—it is absolutely indispensable. I’ve read this book several times and have marked it up to the point that I’m asking Santa for a new one.
