The Bestseller, by Stephen Leather.

Although it’s a murder mystery, there’s quite a lot about the writing process in it, which gives it added interest. Dudley Grose is a creative writing lecturer. Here’s just one quote from one of his lectures:

“It’s only by putting one’s work up for peer review that one can improve. And a writer who doesn’t improve will stagnate and die. So criticism is not to be feared or resented, it is to be welcomed with open arms.”

Sound familiar?

They're remaking the film again - did you know? He's done well out of this little book, hasn't he! $400,000 for the paperback rights, two films, another in preproduction and a musical!

I'm reading Wizard's First Rule by Terry Goodkind. Cliched and poorly written, but the pacing is better than most epic fantasy novels I come across.
