Have you ever thought of writing a book?
Perhaps you have family stories to tell that could
form the backbone of a tense blockbuster? It’s a
cliché, but it’s true: it is never too late to start.
After all, some of our finest authors were late
bloomers. The writer of The Camomile Lawn, Mary Wesley, for
instance, didn’t publish her first adult novel until she was 71,
and then there was no stopping her.
Jeffrey Archer, of course, is a master
of the craft and has sold over
275 million copies, which is why I
am utterly delighted that he has
penned a piece for us revealing the
secrets of how to write a bestseller.
In readiness, I spent the last week reading his gripping Clifton
Chronicles series while on a minibreak to the south coast. From
the De La Warr Pavilion at Bexhill to an old-fashioned ‘holiday
camp’ at Bognor, it was an English treat, and I ate lots of things
that I fear our stunning cover star, Diana Moran, would advise
against. Still, you need carbohydrates when the wind blows off
the Channel. Or you need to hop over the water instead and
choose one of the much sunnier spots offered by our enticing
European Breaks special…
Until next time, best wishes,
Sam Taylor
