New Book: What’s the Story? Building Blocks for Fiction Writing

storytellingWhen I first got interested in fiction writing, I scoured bookstores for a simple, straightforward primer on storytelling. I wanted something that explained the various components of a story, and I found lots of excellent books — some on plotting, others on characters — but I never did find that primer I was looking for.

So I decided to write it.

About the Book

What’s the Story? Building Blocks for Fiction Writing is the first book in a series called The Storyteller’s Toolbox. Here’s the lowdown:

What’s a story? Is it character? Plot? Conflict? Change? Why do some stories fall flat with audiences while others sweep the globe, captivating people in every corner of the world?

Stories are made up of many moving parts: action, dialogue, description, and exposition are just a few components of a story. These, and many other building blocks, are woven together to create a compelling and entertaining narrative.

What’s the Story? Building Blocks for Storytellers parses the elements that work together to form a story, fostering a broader and deeper understanding of stories, what they are made of, and how they are developed.
