From your response to Words Into Cash, I know that many of you are using the 8 Hours method to write a novel for the Kindle and other e-reader platforms.
I wrote Words into Cash: Write and Sell Your Ebook in Just 8 Hours to give you a super-fast and super-easy method of writing nonfiction, but you can just as easily use the method to craft fiction. You just need to add a little something, specifically, Save The Cat! The Last Book on Screenwriting You'll Ever Need... Yes, Save the Cat! is for screenwriters, but you can use the beats to craft fiction.
If you're thinking: Huh? Beats?! Read the Beat Sheet for the movie Inception, Save the Cat!® » Blog Archive » The Inception Beat Sheet:
"Nominated for over 15 awards for best original screenplay, and soaring away with the coveted WGA award for writing, Inception took the world like a storm. Part heist film, part mind-bender, and part love story, Nolan’s ethereal tale is brimming with visual articulations of the Jungian dream archetypes. Waves and trains crash as the harbingers of death, glimpses of the underworld fly onscreen, an Odysseus and his crew struggle to survive as worlds and realities collide, all to Hans Zimmer’s hauntingly fluid score. Inception appears on over 273 critics “top ten” lists; the film is a visual, emotional, and lyrical masterpiece."

Have fun writing your novels. :-)
