Anatomy of a Bestselling Story

Anatomy of a Bestselling Story

In this recording of a LIVE online workshop, you'll discover the surprising secrets that make readers obsess over compelling stories—and you'll find out exactly how to use them to make your own novel irresistible!


The Secrets of Powerful Storytelling Finally Revealed in This Intensive Workshop


That's the sound of a reader putting down your book, never to pick it up again.

Why did she put it down and forget about it forever?

Because she "couldn't get into the story."

Without knowing how to emotionally move your reader, it's impossible to get the results you're capable of with your writing.

The success of your novel depends on your ability to tell not just a great story, but one that's emotionally gripping.

Here's the good news: powerful storytelling doesn't result from luck or genetics. It comes from knowing how to do it!

And that's why Jerry Jenkins is offering his brand new online writers workshop, Anatomy of a Bestselling Story—to give you the tools to ensure your novel is every bit as powerful as you envision it.

In this crash course, which was recorded LIVE, you'll discover the patterns Jerry has seen in bestselling books (including his own bestsellers), as well as the no-no's that will land your manuscript in the publisher's reject pile.

The goal? To help you supercharge your story—to where you're absolutely thrilled with its new direction. 

This online fast-track workshop consists of a three-hour session including a full hour of live Q&A—where Jerry answers exactly what writers like YOU ask!

(You will also have lifetime access to the full training program.)

By the end of this power-packed session, you'll have everything you need to either begin or completely rework your novel immediately!
