Description: Originally created for screenwriters, the Save the Cat! story-structure method provides compelling tips and tricks to make your novel as riveting as a movie—because whether you’re writing a fantasy series, a romance, or the next Great American Novel, every captivating story throughout time (from Jane Austen to Agatha Christie) has the same fifteen essential plot points, or “beats.” Join Jessica Brody, novelist and author of Save the Cat! Writes a Novel, as she guides writers through the 5 “foundation beats” that all great stories are built around and shows them how to use these beats to craft their own bestsellers.
