About the Author

Jordan Rosenfeld is the author of the suspense novels Women in Red, Forged in Grace, and Night Oracle, as well as the writing guides Writing Deep Scenes, co-authored with Martha Alderson; A Writer's Guide to Persistence; Make a Scene; and Write Free, co-authored with Rebecca Lawton.


"Scenes are the building blocks for any work of fiction, basically they are the DNA sequence that makes a novel un-put-downable and unforgettable reading experience. When writers are able to craft effective, engaging scenes, they can develop a complete, cohesive story -- and a mesmerizing experience for readers. Now in a significantly revised and newly expanded edition, Make a Scene: Writing a Powerful Story One Scene at a Time by Jordan Rosenfeld takes aspiring writers step-by-step through the elements of strong scene construction and demonstrates how the essential aspects of a compelling story (including character, plot and dramatic tension) function within the framework of individual scenes to give momentum to the whole narrative. Make a Scene shows how to: Craft an opening scene that hooks readers and foreshadows conflict; Develop various scene types--from contemplative to suspenseful to flashback--that are distinct and purposeful; Establish characters' intentions within a scene that drive the plot; Transition into new scenes by clearly establishing details of setting, character, and point of view; Create resonating climactic and final scenes that stay with readers long after they've finished your story. This newly revised and expanded edition includes brand-new examples, an increased focus on advancing plot and character development, making it an essential part of any personal, community, or academic library's Writing/Publishing instructional reference collections." --James A. Cox at Midwest Book Review
