Indie Author In-Depth Plot Manual (Revised & Expanded)

Learn to plot like a rock-star using this in-depth guide to crafting compelling fiction, and keep your readers coming back for more!

From the writing desk of David Lee Martin...

Plotting can be a royal pain in the posterior. Sometimes it is easier to stay in panster-mode and not tackle the seeming complexities of detailed plotting - and your story potential suffers as a result.

I understand. In fact, I have been there, desperately searching for a simple framework to help me turn that awesome idea into a clear plot pathway. I wanted something that would work like clockwork and help me very single time to craft the best plot I could without getting tangled.

Turn to the expert...

It was then that I turned to a fellow writer whose work has impressed me time-and-again. We had been working together on several projects, and Peter McQueeny's creativity and clear ability to make a sizzling plot leap and spit fire from the page blew me away. Moreover, his genuine love for the wonder of writing, and passionate pursuit of developing the craft, spoke volumes - here is a man with the beating heart of a writer!

The Indie Author In-Depth Plotting Guide boils down the lessons he shared into a  just-what-you-need-just-when-you-need-it manual that you will refer to again and again.

I have no doubt that you will find it as entertaining and as helpful as I do!

Keep punching those keys!

Here is what one successful author has to say about the Indie Author In-Depth Plot manual...

"This guide of plotting insights is phrased in ways that appeal to me on both logical and creative levels. In a few cases, McQueeny has explained writing points - referred to by many respected authors - in ways that I finally understand.

The In-Depth Plotting Guide highlighted several issues that stalled some of my stories, and I didn't realize that was why they were sitting on my hard drive... instead of becoming completed books, earning royalties at Amazon, etc.

For me, this is a brilliant (and fun-to-read) crowbar to pry me loose of some broken "darlings" and get those books back on track."

"David, your “In-Depth Plotting Manual” is one of the MOST detailed training on plotting I’ve come across so far. I consider myself a pretty good plotter, but I've learned so much by going through your course.

I'm impressed by how you've broken down this essential skill for authors in such an easy to understand and easy to implement way.

I won't lie, I found this training so useful, it’s now sitting permanently on my desktop and it’s only one click away to use whenever I'm stuck in my story."
