Story Engineering by Larry Brooks
Okay, I admit it. I am a HUGE FAN of Larry Brooks. I've read his books, eBooks and blog, StoryFix.com.
My copy of Story Engineering is heavily highlighted and underlined. There is at least a mark on each page. Most pages are covered. Only one page has no marks and that's because it is a checklist that I typed out in Word to use for Bon Secour's scenes.
Yes, Story Engineering contains a lot of material that he has previously published in eBooks or in his blog. Story Engineering links them all together, and he adds enough new material that this book is well worth its price. Larry Brooks does the best job of anyone I've read explaining what to do and how to do it.
BUY this book. READ this book. RE-READ this book.
I've only got five stars in my rankings. This book deserves six.
