Six Case Study Videos of Character, Conflict and Stakes in Successful Authors’ Story Blurbs

Taking a look at six popular fantasy stories, we dig down using their blurbs to discover what the stories’ characters, conflicts and stakes are. This can help you narrow it down in your own stories so when it’s time for structural editing, your story is a heck of a lot stronger for understanding it.

The six books:

  • Sabriel by Garth Nix,
  • Cinder by Marissa Meyer,
  • Brisinger by Christopher Paolini,
  • A Dance of Clocks by David Dalglish,
  • Shadow and Bone by Leigh Burdago and
  • In Dark Service by Stephen Hunt
