Introducing: The Page-Turner Project

Want to learn how to write a page-turner? The Page-Turner Project is a 78 page guidebook that helps you understand how a page-turner works, and how to create one yourself!One of the best compliments I can receive for a story is when a reader tells me they couldn’t put it down.

Because, ultimately, that’s my goal as a writer–to create a story readers enjoy so much that they get lost in it. They speed through it. They devour it.

I don’t want to put in all the work of writing a story only to fail at holding the reader’s attention. I want my story to get read and not end up abandoned and forgotten. And I feel like in today’s world with all the distractions and readers’ short attention spans, it’s more important (and challenging!) than ever to keep the reader’s attention.

So I asked myself: How can I write page-turning stories? What is it that hooks readers and gets them addicted? Why do some stories suck you in while others fail?

I unintentionally wrote a page-turner. I set out with the goal to write a darn good story, and based on the feedback I received from friends and beta readers I realized I had not just written a good story, but one they couldn’t put down. I started analyzing what I had done, the techniques I had used, and how it had all added up to a page-turner.

All of my analyzing, study, and research has resulted in my new e-book, The Page-Turner Project. My goal with this e-book is to help you learn how to write your own page-turning stories and get your readers hooked. I’m so excited to finally be sharing this e-book with you because let me tell you, it’s pretty dang epic!

Just what will you learn in this e-book?

  • How to lay a strong foundation to support a page-turning story
  • How to create conflict that matters, and invest readers in your story
  • How to design a page-turning plot
  • How to create tension on every page
  • How to design chapters readers will speed through

But besides all this info, I’ve also included some other epic content. Like what, you ask? Well, I’ve included a case study of Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone that breaks down how J.K. Rowling uses tension and conflict throughout the whole book. That’s right, the whole book. Chapter by chapter, baby.

You’ll also find worksheets to help you brainstorm and lay out your own page-turning story, as well as questions to help you troubleshoot and fix boring scenes. And last but not least, I’ve included a glossary of 36 ways to create conflict and tension for when you’re feeling stuck, complete with examples from books and films.

So it’s practical information, worksheets, case study, and glossary all bundled up into one 78-page epic guide. See why I’m so excited about this book now? 😉 I’ve compiled everything I can think of to help you understand, apply and conquer the concepts you’ll learn into this e-book.

And let me tell you, this is not 78 pages of fluff. No sir, this is 18,600 words of pure, informative content. Forget waffling around, we’re going to dive right in. There’s not even an introduction (because let’s be honest, who actually reads those anyways?).

So, let me ask you: Are you ready to write a story your readers will devour? Click below to purchase your copy of the Page-Turner Project for just $12, and start learning how to design addictive fiction!

  1. What do you think of readers who are so drawn into the story that the story world feels real? It’s not often that I experience not being able to put a book down because daily demands don’t allow it. But I sometimes am so drawn into a story that the real world will feel disorienting for a bit. The most notable time was reading a wintery historical scene and as I got off the bus I was surprised not to hear the clip-clop of horse drawn carriages going down the street and not feeling snowflakes land on my face. I love those story moments!

    1. That’s the best feeling! I’ve experienced similar moments where after a book ends I’m disoriented because a part of me is still in the story, and it takes me a while to come out of it. I love it when a book manages to draw you in like that!

  2. With all the writers coming down the pipe thanks to indie and self-publishing, it’s all the more important to write great stories to stand out in the crowd. My mom and I keep having the same conversation about finding books that sound good on paper, but just don’t hold our attention. It’s kind of sad.
    Thanks for this, Kaitlin!

    1. I feel like standing out in the market is definitely getting tougher as it becomes more and more flooded with authors. You really have to be on top of your game! And yes, with all the hundreds of books that are published each year, there are so very few that manage to hold your attention and make you feel something. It’s frustrating how many good ideas there are out there with poor execution *sigh*
