A number of writers who purchased Build a Better Story have commented favorably on it. Here is the opinion of yet another satisfied writer:
I found your book very informative, and I refer back to it even now. Especially helpful was the suggestion of a novel writing software. My stories come out much more cohesively and are much easier to write. I also liked the suggestions you give for creating tension and mood in a longer story. It has made my novel progress so much more easily.
Your book was the best five bucks I ever spent: Annette Piazza
Other writers have expressed similar positions. Here are some extracts:
If I were giving a class in writing, I’d make chapter four required reading. Here is information you can't get from writing book created by a professional author. That alone is well worth the price of the book. Hank’s emphasis on organization and tools for organizing creativity (both paper and software) are also well worth the price of the book. – Robert Qualkinbush
The key point of the book is to be organized in the planning and writing of your stories, and it shows you precisely how to bring order out of the chaos of story creation. The text offers a concise overview of all the major aspects of story creation, including planning, character development, plot, point of view, etc: Wayne Craun
Hank’s insight into writing and sound, easily understood advice on all the main issues of fiction writing, plus his very easy-to-follow character and plot maps is a highly recommended, writing tool. I found his book easy to read and the work flows well, while he offers practical and sound advice. There is excellent insight into “reader” demands to good writing and good advice from character creation to plot planning with references to further reading in each chapter. Hank has summed up many of the new writer pitfalls. His advice will assist many writers with his structured methodology: Gavin Tonks
