Book description

Want to write page-turning fiction? All authors do; no one sets out to write a boring novel.

Your readers want to enter your novel's world. They want to experience your book — they want to live your book with your main characters.

In short, they want to be entertained. Sadly the gap between the magic of your novel in your mind, and the words on the page, often seems unbridgeable.

What if you could leave boring fiction forever behind you, so that the story in your head becomes the story on the page?

You CAN, when you discover the magic of story, plotting, and scenes. It's a process — an easy process.

If you find it challenging to:

* Create characters readers love;

* Plot your fiction;

* Show, rather than tell...

You now have a process to overcome those challenges.

You need this book: Step By Step To Fiction Which Sells: Plotting And Scene Magic.

You'll discover plotting the easy way, step by step, as you write your novel scene by scene.

This book can become your key to writing fiction which entertains — short stories and novels which your readers love.

I use this process, and I teach it to my students. They love it.

It's my fond hope that you'll love it too. Enjoy. :-)
