    Chock full of great info. Wish there was a print copy so I could flip back through it easily.

    Alexandra Sokoloff takes her screenwriting for authors book and edits it to be (mostly) for romance writers.***You know when you hit one of those ‘how to’ books and when you’ve finished reading it you realise you’ve highlighted a goodly percentage of the book?This would be one of those books.And plus, she recommends watching a list of movies, and keeping notes. I am bonding with kid3 over this. Each night we settle down in front of the telly; me with my notes and a pen, and the tissue bo [...]

    This is an absolutely fantastic how-to guide on novel-writing from a master of story structure. Her adaptation of Christopher Vogler's The Writer's Journey empowered me to plot a trilogy that I've begun writing [must note it's the textbook for her fabulous summer workshop at West Texas A&M]. The analyses of movies in Writing Love are invaluable guides to illustrate her method of modeling novel structure after the 3-act/8 sequence screenplay. And at $2.99, this textbook is worth a hundred tim [...]

    Great book that covers a lot of the basics with copious examples. A good complement to Vogler and Campbell and a good book to serve as a refresher when you don't want to revisit the previously mentioned for the umpteenth time. Very conversational in tone and an easy read. I only wish there was a print-on-demand version because this one is going on my "Repeat offender" bookshelf and I would love to mark up and highlight the heck out of it.

    Amazing! So helpful for my current project

    Concrete and useful advice. Maybe the best book on plotting I've read.

    Randi
    One of the best books on novel writing I've read.

    Pamela Gibson
    Excellent tips for writers, especially those with an eye on a possible film contract. The resources at the end of the book are very helpful. This book is well worth the price.

    Lauren K
    Great resource.

    Leticia
    This is a really long book, and it's fully packed with awesome writing advice. It has a couple of flaws I won't talk about because perhaps they bothered only me. It's a pity there isn't a paperback format for this book.

    This is a must have for writers.
