"Every novelist should own a copy of this book. It will change the way you think about stories--and your writing. Jessica Brody takes the mystery and frustration out of plotting a novel. I'll never write another book without a copy of Save the Cat! Writes a Novel."

Good plotters aren't born. They're formed by studying the twists and turns of others' stories. Save the Cat! Writes a Novel is a perfect plot study tool for all levels of writer. It will help you dissect any plot conundrum, conceive your story's blueprint, and give a beat to every pivot of your hero's journey.
