The Nitty Gritty Writing Podcast: What to Focus on in a Scene, a Chapter, a Book

In this episode, Dave and Simon talk about what you should focus on in a scene, chapter, or book. Stephen Pressfield in his book Nobody wants to read your sh*t talk about the theme of book and how every character and scene should embody that theme. Dave disagrees and talks about how books are about change rather than theme. Check out the audio and video to see the discussion.

For a limited time, I'm giving away the first two books in the Bytarend Fantasy series and the Hard Vacuum science fiction series for free.

Bytarend is fast, fun fantasy that'll have you on the edge of your seat. Hard Vacuum is hard-talking, violent science fiction and my tribute to 80s action movies.
