Coming November 2016: The Secrets of Story
But now we’re here! The book is coming! And it’s coming soon! November 2016, from Writer’s Digest Press! I’m allowed to tell you this now because the deal posted today in Publisher’s Weekly!
Here’s the other thing: They don’t let you pick your own title. So out of all of the dozens of names we bandied about back then, we ended up with something completely different ...but I’m happy with it, in the end. The title they chose was “The Secrets of Story: Innovative Tools for Perfecting Your Fiction and Captivating Readers”. That’s cool with me. What do you think?
(For a long time, they were in love with “Storytelling Mastery”, which I thought was way too pompous, so I’m glad they let me shoot that down.)
So what happens now? Lots of things. For one thing, this site will gradually migrate over to SecretsOfStory.com and then be archived, but that will take a while. In the meantime, I very much need you guys to stick around, because I’d love to pick your brains. Starting tomorrow, I’m going to rope you guys into the process a little bit.
