Editorial Reviews

Review

"Martha Alderson's The Plot Whisperer is the most practical, accessible resource on story structure I've found. I recommend the book to all my students, and I follow its advice in my own work. Thanks for all you do - you've helped me through some tough times!" 
Eleanor Brown author of the New York Times bestseller The Weird Sisters

"I don't work from an outline initially, but once the story is written, I'll go back and make a rough outline of what I have, just to make sure the order of the scenes makes sense. It's a technique I learned from the plot whisper Martha Alderson."
Jen Doktorski author How My Summer Went Up in Flames and The Summer After You and Me

"Plot problems? Turn to Martha Alderson! She's wonderful." Katherine Applegate Newbery Award winner and author of The One and Only Ivan 


"Folks, if you have the chance to learn from Martha Alderson, Plot Whisperer through her books or at a conference do not pass it up! Brilliant!" Danielle M. Smith Literary Agent at Red Fox Literary

"My primary go-to for plotting!!" Janet Fox author of Sirens, Faithful and Forgiven
*
"Best Book for Writers. Alderson provides insight on how to create works of fiction with powerful stories and focuses on how to devise a Universal Plot, plot lines and subplots, compelling scenes, and character transformation." Poets & Writers
