Most books about the craft of writing fiction don't even define a scene, much less describe how to write one. Even fewer address sequels. Scenes are the exciting, turbocharged parts of fiction, driving the story forward. Sequels provide a breather, where the focal character can either celebrate or lick his wounds, then plan his next move. A thorough understanding of scenes and sequels helps you learn how to write page-turning fiction.

The concept of how to write scenes and sequels in fiction was championed by Dwight V. Swain (1915-1992) and Jack M. Bickham (1930-1997). Scenes and Sequels: How to Write Page-Turning Fiction by Mike Klaassen builds on the work of Swain and Bickham to create the most comprehensive and concise explanation of how to write page-turning fiction anywhere. 

Scenes and Sequels: How to Write Page-Turning Fiction by Mike Klaasssen is available for order as a paperback or an ebook at traditional and online bookstores just about everywhere.
