Author Eddie Jonesabout this book: In this book YOU WILL, in 60 minutes, LEARN the basic elements of a novel. As Senior Managing Editor of a regional book publisher, I have sat across the appointment table with authors who pitch me their project.

When I ask:

• "Who's your main character?"
• "What's the inciting incident in Act One?"
• What is the main character's call to action and how do they deny this call?"

I often get blank stares. Regardless of your genre, all stories have basic elements. This book is intended to help the beginning novelist learn the basics of plotting, scenes, dialogue, and character development.

I use this information at writers conferences to brainstorm with authors and help my clients at If you need help with your story, contact me at: Helping authors is what I do. Oh, and YOU can help me. Should you find a typo in A Novel Idea, please let me know. In return I will send you a FREE copy of TWO EDITING ebooks that I'm sure you will find helpful.
