Book Summary:

Novelist Jessica Brody presents a comprehensive story-structure guide for novelists that applies the famed Save the Cat screenwriting methodology to the world of novel writing. Revealing the 15 beats (plot points) that comprise a successful story--from the opening image to the finale--this book lays out the Ten Story Genres (Monster in the House; Whydunit; Dude with a Problem) alongside quirky, original insights (Save the Cat; Shard of Glass) to help novelists craft a plot that will captivate--and a novel that will sell.
