    Amy Deardon's The Story Template is a writer's conference in a single book. Building brick upon brick, she teaches the writer how to create his novel from the basics of story structure, plot, and characterization to writing a synopsis and publishing. I wish I'd had this detailed tool when I first started writing. --Vickie McDonough award winning author of 23 books and novellas I love The Story Template's clear language and story-building exercises. In my writing, I've never been successful with traditional outlines; The Story Template helps nail down plot points, yet doesn't suffocate the spontaneity that I love about the creative process. I work with teen writers, and this will be my go-to book for helping them construct a story. -- Stephanie Morrill author of The Reinvention of Skylar Hoyt series and creator of GoTeenWriters.com Amy makes me want to pick up the pen and launch into a new novel because she makes it sound so easy. A practical guide for fiction writers at any level, certain to unlock creativity because it takes care of the nuts and bolts of story construction, freeing the imagination to do its thing. --Grace Bridges Managing Editor, Splashdown Books
