Mustang Patty Presents:

What’s the Story? By Melissa Donovan

The subtitle for this book is:

Building Blocks for Fiction Writing

(from The Storyteller’s Toolbox)

Melissa Donovan has an excellent series of books written for writers of fiction. I own several and they are a great resource for me. She also has a few books of exercises that I go to when I’m ‘stuck.’ Additionally, she has a blog that is always full of good information. 

Check it out:   

(While you’re there, sign up for her weekly newsletter.)

I will be giving away a copy of this book sometime in the next week.

Would YOU like to add it to your library?

Simply send me an email: and tell me how you think this book would help You and Your Process.

Everyone who sends me an email will be eligible for the prize:

A paperback of the book sent to you at your home address.

I find that this book is an excellent resource because it covers so many of the elements of story writing all in one place. This book explained, in great detail, so many different terms: character, plot, conflict, and change. It challenged me to understand the story in a myriad of ways.

If you want to understand how the elements work together to form your story and allow you to learn about what a story is made of and how it is developed – then this is the book for you!

Send me an email TODAY so you will be entered in the drawing – you won’t be sorry!!

Until next time,

~Mustang Patty~

I am finally a full-time author, who writes legal thrillers, how-to- books, short stories, flash fiction, a tiny bit of poetry, and Blog posts. My published works include 'Guilty until Proven Innocent,' and 'Innocent for the Moment.' Both of these books are part of a trilogy called the Jill Adair Series. The third book will be available in late summer of 2020. I'm currently coordinating a Collection of works created by Artists during the Pandemic. The title of the book is '2020 Artists on LockDown Collection,' and it will be available for sale on in early September 2020. I'm also coordinating an Anthology of Short Stories called, '2020 Indie Authors Short Story Anthology.' This book will be available on on Black Friday, 2020 - just in time for holiday giving. I am married to my wonderful hubby of over 36 years, and I have two grown children, named Heather and Gregory. I've been blessed with two beautiful grandbabies, Heather Rose and Logan Ernest.
