Are you a fiction writer? Do you ever find yourself slogging through your novel wondering, what am I doing? Why am I doing this? What day is it, anyway? And where the heck is the wine?! Well, never fear, dear writer. I am here for you. Within these pages you will discover the highlights of story structure from rough beginnings, through the middle slog, to the blessed end. This book also includes information on writing effective dialogue, crafting scenes that do double duty, creating dimensional characters, pros and cons of indie vs. traditional publishing, and much more, delivered in a humorous and (hopefully) entertaining way. Mary Frame is the author of more than a dozen titles including the Dorky Duet and the Imperfect Series, which Publisher's Weekly called, "...a thoughtful and highly entertaining read." She is a full time mother and wife with a full time job. She has no idea how she manages to write novels, except that it helps being a dedicated introvert. She doesn't enjoy writing about herself in third person, but she does enjoy reading, writing, dancing, and damaging the ear drums of her co-workers when she randomly decides to sing to them. She lives in Reno, Nevada with her husband, two children, and a border collie named Stella.
