   Whether you’re an adept or a neophyte, this book will help you write better action. Which kind of pow, bang, and boom we’re talking about is up to you!

Action Sequences is divided into 8 easy-to-access dilemmas that I most frequently see plaguing action scenes, like missing emotional penetration, research, melodramatics, and setting and blocking. Each section offers a deep dive with examples into the subject matter, plus a bunch of sidebar Pro Tips and exercises.

Sex Scenes delves into the multitude of complex and difficult aspects of writing sex scenes in fiction. I go into detail on if and when you should include a sex scene, how far you should go, what a sex scene should do for your story, and most importantly, what it should do for your characters. I go through the most common mistakes I see and how to fix them, and even include a list of words you should probably put on your no-fly list. In the margins you’ll find more Pro Tips and exercises to help you through.

*Please note that digital media being what it is, the e-books are not flip books. Each subject is separated into it's own file.
