If you’ve ever dreamed of making it in music, then "Making Noises" is your novel.

“Euan Mitchell, author of the independent bestseller 'Feral Tracks', knows his rock’n’roll … and this laid-back, ironic take on the Australian music industry in the ’90s captures the spirit of the time. It’s fast-paced and grungy, full of backroom intrigue and colourful characters.”
The Age

“Loved it. I felt I knew almost all the seedy, manipulative, gold-digging music biz characters – but fortunately only on a two-faced, air-kiss kind of basis … Funny, astute, honest.”
Rob Hirst, Midnight Oil

“In the same way that 'Spinal Tap' is not a fiction, neither is 'Making Noises'. The stuff in both stories really does happen.”
John Archer, Hunters & Collectors

“Euan Mitchell does a nice line in laid-back prose.”
Sydney Morning Herald

*****

Marty is a rock musician on the wrong side of thirty who needs to change his tastes in music, women and cities. Billy is fifteen, talented and in prison.

The two are thrown together by the fast-talking former politician, Perce "Perk" Harrigan, whose powerful friends have handed him the plum job of launching the Oz Rock Foundation. Oz Rock uses taxpayer dollars to promote hip bands and quietly lift the Prime Minister’s youth vote.

Harrigan and his sultry but fascist assistant, Ingrid, need to ‘spin’ Oz Rock into orbit despite the cynics. They enlist Marty’s help to manipulate Billy to the top of the music charts. But their greatest enemy may not be the one publicly calling for Harrigan’s head.

There's more to writing a successful fantasy story than building a unique world or inventing new magic. How exactly is a plot put together? How do you know if your idea will support an entire novel? How do you grab reader attention and keep it? How do you create dynamic, multi-dimensional characters? What is viewpoint and do you handle it differently in urban fantasy than in traditional epics? What should you do if you're lost in the middle? How do you make your plot end up where you intend it to go? From the writing of strong, action-packed scenes to the handling of emotions, let award-winning fantasy author Deborah Chester guide you through the process of putting a book together. Convinced there's no need to shroud the writing process under a veil of mystery, Chester supplies tips that are both practical and proven. They are exactly what she uses in writing her own novels and what she teaches in her writing courses at the University of Oklahoma. Along with explaining story construction step-by-step, Chester illustrates each technique with examples drawn from both traditional and urban fantasy. The technique chapters include exercises to assist novices in mastering the craft of writing fantasy as well as suggestions for avoiding or solving plot problems. More experienced writers will find tips for taking their work to the next level. With an introduction by author Jim Butcher, The fantasy fiction formula provides the information you need to gain skill and proficiency in writing fantasy like a pro.
