Ten Steps To Building a Better Story

Ninety percent (90!) of all stories fail at the premise level.  It's a fact that no amount of writing or skill can make a great story out of a weak idea. Now you can learn the steps professional writers use to qualify an idea before they commit to writing, and how too test your story at the premise level before you dedicate valuable time to developing and writing.

This Masters Workshop is ideal for both aspiring and active authors who want to take their writing to the next level and increase their chances for publication.

Writing The Cinematic Novel
Could Your Novel Become a Movie?

It is a lifelong dream of most novelists to have their novel made into a feature film.   In fact, more than 80% of all movies made today are based on novels and other source materials.  

But did you know that you can greatly increase your odds of making that sale to Hollywood simply by understanding what makes a great adaptation.  Many writers today- like John Le Carre, Dan Brown, Michael Crichton, and others - write in such a way as to grab the attention of directors, actors, producers and major film studios with each new work. They write stories meant for this world-wide audience . . . and you can, too!
