If You’re Writing A Novel — This Should Be The First Book You Read

I’m a fan of Blake Snyder’s “Save The Cat” series, and lo and behold — I also transitioned from writing screenplays to novels — so this book was exactly what I was looking for.

Jessica nails it on many levels; there’s so much here to help you craft the best novel possible. I can’t recommend this book enough, and I’ve highlighted it away into oblivion. I’ll be re-reading this for years to come. Thank you Jessica!
