Editorial Reviews

Review

"Aside from actually writing 100,000 words of a story, one of the most difficult things in fiction is boiling that huge story down to a pithy sentence or two - what the movie industry calls a logline. What Jordan Smith has done in this fast little book is offer a series of formulae to ease that process. As an outliner, creating a premise sentence (basically a logline) is always a foundational part of process, so I'm totally on-board with what Smith is encouraging here. He's broken the art of the logline down into a bit-by-by exploration that takes all of the intimidation and confusion out of the process. Definitely worth the read."
--K. M. Weiland, award-winning author

"If more writers would heed the advice on these pages, they would avoid the inept pitches and synopses so common among self-published authors. Highly recommended as an essential read for any writer."
--Aubrey Hansen, founder of Penoaks Publishing

"Any storyteller of any medium can benefit tremendously from distilling their tale into a single, manageable sentence, and this book will walk you through every step you need to do just that. Definitely a must-read for storytellers!"
--J. Grace Pennington, author of Firmament: Radialloy
