Business for Breakfast, Volume 3: Ultimate Guide to Indie Publishing


So. You’re a writer.

Do you know the bones of what makes a good story? It’s not the same thing as being a writer, not at all.

How do you learn to tell a good story? There’s trial and error, sure.

But there are also books like this, to help you along, making it easier to learn, to remember.

Some of the topic discussed include:

  • The Seven Point Plot Structure
  • Genre as a thing
  • Story length as a professional requirement
  • Breakfast dragons

Also read the other volumes in the Business for Breakfast series: “The Beginning Professional Writer,” “The Beginning Professional Publisher,” and the sequel to this volume, “The Intermediate Professional Storyteller”.
