Every week we will feature a writer and invite contributions from readers.
Bibliovista Book Club - Welcome Aboard.
‘There are three rules to writing a novel,’ according W. Somerset Maugham, ‘but unfortunately no one knows what they are.’
Well, that might not be a bad thing. For, whatever the rules, narrative writing brings us on a journey. We might find ourselves drifting serenely into a land, filled with butterflies and fragrant with jasmine flowers; or our trip might be a white-knuckle plunge down the rapids with a drunken psychopath at the helm; or, indeed, we might have to endure a three-day horror on a bus with wooden seats, no toilet or air-conditioning and wish we’d stayed at home and filled out our tax-return.
So, wherever you're going, remember our wish is to help you plan your trip. Here, in the Book Club, you can dip a toe in the water before you depart. You can read large excerpts from novels and if you like what you find, you can then take to your wings and visit the writers site, check out what’s on offer and read on.
So, go forth. Explore the wonderful art of the novel. Select from the categories by just clicking on the links. Enjoy reading excerpts from novels, gothic, romance, fantasy, historical, mystery, and more.
