Scene and Sequel--Plotting Super Power

★ Do you hope your next book will be optioned for film or TV?
★ Does your book pack a satisfying emotional punch?
★ Want to eliminate sagging middles?
★ Is your plot dilly-dallying on an escalator? Or strapped onto a Godzilla roller coaster that has your readers flying through the pages?

Scene & Sequel will juice-up your plot engine and kick your readers’ emotions into high gear.

Professor Dwight Swain spent decades studying what made certain books and movies blockbusters while others dwindled into obscurity. He identified the Scene & Sequel concept in his book, Techniques of the Selling Writer.

It's a SUPER tool! But Scene & Sequel can be tough to comprehend from Swain’s writings. Scene & Sequel is like Literary Nuclear Physics.

Don’t worry! Put away your hazmat suit, Kathleen has a method that makes it EASY TO UNDERSTAND. 

Award-winning, Amazon bestselling author, Kathleen Baldwin, will show you what Scene and Sequel really is, how to apply it to your writing, and she’ll give you cheat sheets and examples so you can power-up your current manuscript.

Scene & Sequel works! Kathleen had more than six producers, screenwriters, and directors vie for options on her latest series, A School for Unusual Girls. She signed an option with Ian Bryce, producer of SpidermanTransformersSaving Private Ryan, and other notable films.
