There's more to writing a successful fantasy story than building a unique world or inventing new magic. How exactly is a plot put together How do you know if your idea will support an entire novel How do you grab reader attention and keep it How do you create dynamic, multi-dimensional characters What is viewpoint and do you handle it differently in urban fantasy than in traditional epics What should you do if you're lost in the middle How do you make your plot end up where you intend it to go

From the writing of strong, action-packed scenes to the handling of emotions, let award-winning fantasy author Deborah Chester guide you through the process of putting a book together. Convinced there's no need to shroud the writing process under a veil of mystery, Chester supplies tips that are both practical and proven. They are exactly what she uses in writing her own novels and what she teaches in her writing courses at the University of Oklahoma.

Along with explaining story construction step-by-step, Chester illustrates each technique with examples drawn from both traditional and urban fantasy. The technique chapters include exercises to assist novices in mastering the craft of writing fantasy as well as suggestions for avoiding or solving plot problems. More experienced writers will find tips for taking their work to the next level.

With an introduction by author Jim Butcher, The fantasy fiction formula provides the information you need to gain skill and proficiency in writing fantasy like a pro.
