What makes a story feel connective, engaging, and complete?
If you've listened to dozens of storytelling craft books and still don't have a strong answer to that question, you'll love how Nail Your Story doesn't give you another laundry list of items that your story is supposed to have.
Instead, Nail Your Story attempts to reveal the connections between the various parts of a story so that you can more easily build cohesive plots, characters, themes, and settings - without having to stress over the decisions, because (surprise!) you've probably already made them in another area of your book.
Included in the book:
If you've struggled to get five-star reviews on your stories or build an audience of people dying to get your next book, Nail Your Story will help you identify areas of improvement and even show you how a few small tweaks in your currently available content can make a massive difference in your sales!

This book is probably a great book to have in print, but because of the large number of ever expanding tables used to prove a point, it doesn't work well as an audiobook. By the time Cindy has read the entire table to you to get to the "new" part of the table, I was bored out of my mind and had forgotten what Monica was trying to do/prove. It was fine when the tables were small, but as the book went on and the tables got longer, I got lost. I kept wishing they had just assumed that the reader could keep up with what had happened previously in the examples and would just get to the point. If you are deciding to whether to buy this in print or as an audio, go for the print. The visual aspect of the book will be more helpful than the never-ending drone of the examples. I have an hour left in this audio and just want to cry when I think about listening to it. I don't think I'll be able to finish it. However, I might just go buy the print book because I believe that might be worth the money.
I recommend reading over it a few times in kindle because when I first read it I did not get it at all. I was completely lost because I have never heard of the 4 part structure. I went back through it about 2 more times. I finally started to understand it while taking notes. The worksheets helped me understand it much better and I recommend the worksheets for anyone who is starting out reading this book because there is a lot of information to cover. There are still some things I do not understand like thematic elements but going online and using the examples really help. Take your time with this book. I really wish there were more drawn out explanations for the last 3 layers
