New York Times bestseller Dianna Love and Award-winner Mary Buckham have collaborated to offer both plotters and seat-of-the-pants writers a way to write powerful stories. This workshop-in-a-book will show writers how to develop a better story by learning on their own stories. Based on their popular Break Into Fiction® workshops, this innovative book shows writers how to create stories of depth, excitement, and emotion with:

  • Easy-to-understand templates that show any fiction writer how to avoid a sagging middle and keep the reader on edge
  • Reference examples from strongly-plotted popular films from genres like suspense, classics, children’s, and romance
  • Simple worksheets to build a strong story one plot point at a time for any genre
  • Troubleshooting tips that reveal how to find and fix holes that weaken the plot
  • Insights from best-selling novelists representing a variety of fiction genres
  • A bonus dialogue guide that reveals how to make a character come alive through conversation

Aspiring authors now have a book which acts as their own personal critique partners as they answer the questions in Break Into Fiction®.
