Coil Bound

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
SPIRAL-BOUND EDITION-- "Body Beats to Build On" is on a mission to nix the same old "he smiled," to transform the beat into phrasing the reader won’t flag as been-there-done-that. It all starts with a gasp. Fifty-seven of them actually. In one manuscript. You probably just gasped. Or maybe you gulped air, pulled a sharp breath through your teeth, sucked in a lungful of wind, or took a crisply in-drawn breath. The truth is, having numerous inhales over the course of a manuscript isn’t so odd. The trouble arrives with repetition. Staying inventive isn’t easy, though. Especially when it comes to those actions an author can’t avoid repeating. This book provides the bones for fresh, vibrant content. Layer with a little imagination, mix and match, and voilà—endless, unique beats. Bonus Material: --thesaurus of 600+ adjectives used to describe gazes, smiles, and laughter --library of 500 dialogue tags categorized for quick grab
