This is a simple version of my 24 chapter novel outlining template; so if you really want to understand how all the chapters go together and what they mean, check out my writing tutorials.

I also made a video about how to format and publish a book in Google Docs; however I was stumbling around and didn’t get everything right. I was searching for an “indent” feature and didn’t find it until watching the video later. So I made a second video just on formatting, which I recommend you watch instead.

UPDATE: Plotting is a good start but it isn’t everything; you also need to create suspense and conflict in your book to keep readers turning pages. I’ve created an online course on with advance writing tips, sharing everything I know about writing books that sell (I’ve sold about 50,000 so far).

The “Bestseller Blueprint” was $197 originally, but I really want to help more writers, so I’ve discounted it to just $37 for a limited time. And I’m giving away two bonus courses, with some more advanced tips for writing fiction and nonfiction books. If you’re looking for more direct feedback and a deep developmental critique of your writing, there are a few more spots left to work one-on-one with me. Happy writing!
