Book Review – 5 Secrets of Story Structure by KM Weiland

5 Secrets of Story Structure: How to Write a Novel That Stands Out (Helping Writers Become Authors Book 6)5 Secrets of Story Structure: How to Write a Novel That Stands Out by K.M. Weiland

My rating: 4 of 5 stars
5 Secrets of Story Structure by KM Weiland covers off on the fundamentals of structuring a novel.
The Bad Stuff: If there is any bad advice in this book I couldn’t find it. My only qualm would be with the term ‘plot points’. In my opinion this term was a little vague and did not fit, but this is only my opinion and it is a minor thing considering the value of the content in this book.

The Good Stuff: This book is well presented and provides the formula for writing a good story in an easy to understand way. The content is very similar to Planning Your Novel by Janice Hardy, but presented in a slightly different format. From memory, I paid around $16.00 for the Janice Hardy book and I have no regrets, but this book by KM Weiland was free on Amazon and is just as insightful. Excellent value and a great book for anyone who needs to gain a better understanding of story structure.

This book will be of great use to those starting out with their writing and anyone who struggles with story structure. It will teach you the fundamentals of the structure required to write a good story in an easy to understand, tried and tested way. I’m giving it 4 out of 5 golden bookmarks.
