Write This Book: A Do-It-Yourself Mystery.pdf
Praise for Write This Book:
"...A marvelous tutorial, covering everything from how to write effective dialogue to choosing perspective to genre to world-building...Writing a book has never been so much fun. A must-have where the "Secret" series is popular." (School Library Journal)
"Through a variety of puzzles, games, and activities, readers become writers and, hopefully, learn a little about the writing process as they go." (Parents.com)
"Fans of The Secret Series will feel right at home with Bosch's trademark style and humor which starts right from the beginning...This would be a great book to use in summer writing groups or as part of a writing club at a school." (Kid Lit Frenzy)

This imaginative companion to the New York Times bestselling Secret Series teases, prompts, and leads readers through the steps of writing a story. Bosch's signature rip-roaring voice delivers an engaging narrative (for the reader to help complete!) and interactive puzzles and games. Readers get the chance to create their own story while enjoying a satisfying mystery as well.
Here's a note from our fearless "author":I feared this might happen. I knew reading was a dangerous business, but now it's not safe for writers either! You see, the author of this book is missing. Well, maybe not "missing." A certain author whom I won't name (okay, me) has abandoned his book and has left his readers hanging out to dry. This is a crime, I admit, but there it is. Most of this book, well, I just haven't written it. And I'm not going to, either.
Why? Oh, I have my reasons. Big. Grown up. Author. Reasons. Unfortunately, I can't reveal them yet. Let's just say a life is at stake (mine) and leave it at that. So will you do it? Pretty please? You'll do it? Thank you! But please hurry! Time is of the essence and you can't wait any longer. You must WRITE THIS BOOK!
