HOW DO WRITERS SELL NOVELS TO NEW YORK HOUSES OR INDIE PUB SUCCESSFULLY?
The answer is: They write books that sell.
Sounds simple, right? But how do YOU write a great book that readers and editors will enjoy? Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser (write by the seat of your pants),this Power Plotting Workshop will help you locate – and fix – weak spots (sagging middles, unlikeable characters, slow pacing and more) in your fiction stories. Strong story structure is key to any story, and it starts with your understanding of what structure means.
Writing fast means nothing if the final story isn’t sound. What’s the point in having five, ten or fifty mediocre books finished? The sooner you grasp the power points for a story, the faster you’ll be able to build a strong backlist. Now you have a way to improve your writing one easy step at a time.
"As a published author I need to plot stories quickly and efficiently. The Break into Fiction program not only helps me outline my books before I start writing, but also gives me resources to turn to when I get stuck in the dreaded middle. Finally, I have the tools I need to push through episodes of writer’s block. I recommend Break into Fiction for published and unpublished authors who want to write page-turning, character- and conflict-driven stories."
~~ Melinda Leigh, multi-published RS author
"I want to thank you for the dedication and quality that you put into this workshop/retreat. As a beginner writer, I really appreciate that you embraced those at my level as well as more experienced writers. After only 2 hours on the first day, my writing colleague and friend thanked me heartily for encouraging her to attend the workshop. I will sing your praises and direct my other writing colleagues to your retreat."
~~ Elaine Gray, pre-published writer
