Strategies for getting the most out of what your characters say–and how they say it.

Allie Pleiter is the author of “The Chunky Method Handbook: Your Step-by-Step Plan to WRITE THAT BOOK Even When Life Gets in the Way.” The award-winning author of over thirty novels with 1.3 million books sold world-wide, Pleiter has been teaching her nuts-and-bolts tactics across the country for years to writers of all genres, ages, and experience levels. She writes both fiction and non-fiction, working on as many as four books at a time. The “dare from a friend” to begin writing has produced a seventeen-year, 30+ title career with over one million books sold. In addition to writing, Allie regularly speaks on faith, the creative process, women’s issues, and her very favorite topic—time management for writers. Visit her website at www.alliepleiter.com
