Editorial Reviews

Review

"Diane Drake has created truly brilliant and original high-concept stories for the screen. Anyone hoping to write a great screenplay would do well to consider her advice."
- Kim Krizan, screenwriter of "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset"

"Diane Drake knows about screenwriting, and lays it out for aspiring writers in this funny, engaging book. With examples from an array of genres, terrific step-by-step exercises, and plenty of inspiring quotes to keep you focused on the story you want to write, Get Your Story Straight is the first tool I would put in any screenwriter's box. This is a book I'll revisit regularly. Fabulous!"
- Meg Waite Clayton, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author of five novels including "The Race for Paris" and "The Wednesday Sisters"

"Want to learn what it takes to write a million-dollar screenplay? Then you must check out Get Your Story Straight by Diane Drake. Her book is a thorough insider's guide to writing a script worthy of seven figures by someone who has actually done it. I highly recommend it."
- Jen Grisanti, Story/Career Consultant, International Speaker, Writing Instructor at NBC and author of "Story Line: Finding Gold in Your Life Story" and "Change Your Story, Change Your Life"

"Diane Drake's experience in script development and screenwriting is both educational and inspiring. Unlike some screenwriting books that are written by those who just teach, Get Your Story Straight gives you an inside look at how one writer used her tools and experience to write engaging and successful scripts that actually made it to the screen."
- Alan Wenkus Co-Writer/Executive Producer "Straight Outta Compton"
