Is it your dream to write a novel but you’re not sure where to start? Do you have a great idea but you’re not sure how to develop it? Are you a seasoned author trying to develop your newest story, or do you just need a place to organize your story bible? Are you traditionally published, or self-published, or even a hybrid author? Are you an outliner? A pantser? A creative writing teacher or student? If your answer was yes to any of these questions, then this series is perfect for you. Wherever you are on your writing journey, this outlining series can help you find your story.
For those who are wondering, a story bible is a collection of all relevant information used in the creation of a book. It’s where you would store important quotes, character information, character arcs, plot outlines, setting details, and more, all organized into one easily accessible place so that the author can use it when needed.
The Manual is a companion guide that is meant to be used in conjunction with the rest of the series. It contains an overview and examples of the basics of plot structure, point of view, character development, setting, and world building as well as practice pages that can be used to either analyze your favorite stories in order to identify and better understand exactly what it is that they did well, or practice creating your own story before you begin your work in the story bible workbooks. It also includes some general tips for writing as well as a list of additional resources you can use to learn more about writing, editing, pitching, publishing, and marketing a novel.
The rest of the books in the series provide prompts and enough space to outline and create a story bible for a single novel up to a four book series.
The Manual is available in both eBook and paperback formats while the story bible workbooks are each available in paperback only to give you lots of space to create you story bible!
