My last appearance on the Fully Booked podcast went so well, hosts Craig Tuch and Roland Hulme invited me back for another chat. This time, we talked about the importance of story stakes. We talked about why the stakes in Jaws and The Hunger Games were so effective, why Jack Reacher will never have a girlfriend, and how you can raise the stakes in your novel, no matter which genre you’re writing.
We touched on a lot of the things you can find in NO HERO WANTS TO SAVE THE WORLD. We also went beyond what’s in the book, to discuss some brand-new things!

More Internet for your Ears.
This week, I was a guest on the Fully Booked podcast where hosts Craig Tuch and Roland Hulme interviewed me. We talked about why an editor is like rocket fuel, why revisions are like Jenga, and the number one mistake authors make when revising their novels. We touched on some things found in THE BIG-PICTURE REVISION CHECKLIST, and many things that are not!
You can watch Fully Booked on YouTube (look for episode #20), although this is a podcast, so it’s meant for listening. Here is the direct link to listen online. You can also find it on apple podcasts, Amazon podcasts, and Spotify, or wherever you like to listen. The episode is about 45 minutes long.
