This is it, 8 Steps to Side Characters textbook (and workbook) is launching in just 48 hours.
Do your characters fail to bring your story to life? Are they flat, boring or have no depth? Is your story lacking a little cohesion or sparkle?
8 Steps to Side Characters will help. In the book I answer questions like:
- How to stop your side characters taking over
- What side characters need character arcs and how to create them How to handle a big cast of characters
- When and how you should kill a side character for maximum impact How to imbue your side characters with your book’s theme
- How to create characters with the illusion of depth
If you haven’t got your copy, you can get one using the links below or order direct from me using the purple link.
