About the Author
Gail Carriger is an award-winning New York Times bestselling author who writes to cope with being raised in obscurity by an expatriate Brit and an incurable curmudgeon. She escaped small-town California life and inadvertently acquired several degrees in higher learning. She then traveled the historic cities of Europe, subsisting entirely on biscuits secreted in her handbag. She resides in the United States, surrounded by fantastic shoes, where she insists on tea imported from London. Her books are published in over a dozen different languages.
"The first book on writing structure that's ever truly resonated for me and made sense of the way my favorite stories work. I've thought back to this book so many times since reading it, and I know I'll be reading it again!"
Stephanie Burgis, Author of The Dragon with a Chocolate Heart
"I'm not sure how you can just rewire my brain to see the heroine's journey like this and then expect me to make coherent, thought-out comments about the text when all I want to do is hold it in my twisted little grip while I shove it at people screaming like a madman and pointing at passages."
Author Beta Reader
"Wow! This was incredible. I am in awe of the information, structure, detail, and format. It clearly lays out the bones and framework of a good book, with generous tips and guidance."
Lisa R, Beta Reader
"Carriger's Parasol Protectorate series beautifully blends together alternate history, steampunk and paranormal romance into stories that are witty, engaging and fun."
Kirkus (on Soulless)
"Behind the delightful whimsy and snarky observations, there is a great deal of heart and soul..."
RT Book Reviews (Prudence by Gail Carriger)
"Gail Carriger has the deft storytelling of Jones and the whimsy of Jasper Fforde. It's fun, fresh, witty, exciting, and is full of dastardly doings and an easy absurdity that leaves a smile on your face."
