“Thanks for enhancing my world. Perhaps best of all, I’m applying your method to my current manuscript. I’ve published eight books with Harlequin Historicals and Steeple Hill Love Inspired. I’ve read tons of craft books, but this is the first time I’ve been able to truly apply a plotting method. I’m approaching my current story more visually and am experiencing a quicker, deeper connection to my characters.”
