Comic-Con How-To: Don't Tell Your Story, Show It!
Ever wonder how really good books suck a reader in and hold their attention page after page? It's not the characters, nor the plot of the book. It is the way in which the author writes that separates their story from the pack. Award-winning author Maxwell Alexander Drake helps you gain insight into how to put your story together in a compelling way that will have your readers turning page after page to see what happens next.
