Product description

Review

"Jane Cleland's Mastering Plot Twists is a master class in crafting plots that twist and turn, sparked with conflict and fired with human emotion." --Hallie Ephron, New York Times best-selling author of You'll Never Know, Dear

"Mastering Plot Twists provides a unique and absolutely invaluable toolbox for any author (new or experienced) who wants to produce a riveting, twisty, un-putdownable page turner. And who doesn't " --Kate White, New York Times best-selling author of 13 suspense novels and former editor-in-chief of Cosmopolitan

"Jane turns the process of plotting inside out and lays bare the bones of a compelling story that will capture your readers' attention and imagination. She gives you the tools to think like an editor in the crucial early stages of planning: exploring character motivation and conflict, perceptions and expectations, and sub-plots and pacing. This excellent how-to is much more than the twists." --Linda Landrigan, editor, Alfred Hitchcock's Mystery Magazine

"The Queen of Plot Twists, Jane Cleland has done it again. In this brilliant follow-up to her Agatha-winning Mastering Suspense, Structure, & Plot, Cleland reveals the secrets to writing page-turners that sell. From the basics of pre-plotting to the subtle art of surprise endings, this is the ingenious guide you need to take your story from good to great--one plot twist at a time. A must-have for every writer's bookshelf!" --Paula Munier, author of the Writer's Digest bestseller Plot Perfect and A Borrowing of Bones, a Mercy and Elvis K-9 mystery
