A great novel is honed, not hatched.

Immersion and Emotion: The Two Pillars of Storytelling by David Griffin Brown and Michelle Barker

There are two pillars to effective storytelling: immersion and emotional draw. Immersion is what transports readers into your story world. Emotional draw is what keeps them there.

This book will take you deep into the craft workshop of the Darling Axe's two senior editors. Michelle and David's core editorial philosophy is simple: every element of a story must serve the reader's experience.
