Originally created for screenwriters, the Save the Cat! story-structure method provides compelling tips and tricks to make your novel as riveting as a movie—because whether you’re writing a fantasy series, a romance, or the next Great American Novel, every captivating story throughout time from Jane Austen to Agatha Christie has the same fifteen essential plot points, or “beats.”  Join novelist Jessica Brody as she demystifies each beat, making it simple to craft your own best seller.

Launching to Win: Strategies for a Bestselling Book Release

Evergreen 1 & 2

10:00 – 11:30 a.m.

Presented by: Doug Walsh



This workshop provides a comprehensive overview of the steps needed to ensure a successful launch of your indie-published novel. Divided into three phases: design, pre-order, and post-launch, this workshop reveals the steps best-selling indie authors use to ensure their books launch with a bang and are indistinguishable from those of a Big Five publisher. Attendees will each receive a customizable guide to planning their next book launch as well as a thorough overview of the steps needed to crack the popularity charts, gain, and hold a high sales rank and succeed in each of the three launch phases.
