Great page-turning stories live or die by their plots.

The plot is simply the way you organize your story, the way you fit the puzzle pieces together to form a connected and coherent picture for the reader.

Plots are really the glue that holds character and story together, making your story compelling to read.

Devising a good plot begins with organizing your ideas in a way that is appealing to the reader. It is also the guide that helps the author make sure he doesn’t get lost amid the ideas and characters that enter the story while the book is being written.

Getting the hang of what is expected of you as an author can be hard. Sometimes your second book can be equally as difficult – and scary. If you need a hand to get the grit of your story to flow properly – I can help:
