In his highly acclaimed book A Story is a Promise & The Spirit of Storytelling, author Bill Johnson takes readers step by step through the process of fulfilling the promise a writer makes to a reader. In this revised edition, Johnson expands upon his earlier editions to include information on how writers can fully develop characters by exploring the depths of their own personal archetypes.
"If you were allowed to use only one book to guide your writing, that book must be Bill Johnson's A Story is a Promise & The Spirit of Storytelling." Elizabeth Lyon, author of Manuscript Makeover, The Sell Your Novel Tool Kit, and other books for writers.
"This is an excellent book. The author shows why some novels are page-turners, and why some are not. He talks about a novel's promise and premise, and how to make these work. I highly recommend this book to all new fiction writers - and to some not so new writers." Mark Chapman, Amazon review.
