It covers expert methods for enhancing creativity, building story worlds, characters, and plots, understanding your market (right down to your ideal reader), using the best tools possible to capture your draft, and explains proven best practices for editing. The book also discusses covers, titles, formatting, pricing, publishing to multiple platforms and the psychology-driven marketing plan that Sean and Johnny built to shape their stories into “products” that readers couldn't help but be drawn into.
