STORY MAPS: 12 Great Screenplays (Raiders of the Lost Ark, Up, Rocky, Sex and the City, X-Men, Black Swan, Juno, The Matrix) a.k.a. the “Booster Pack” is a companion book to Daniel Calvisi’s best-seller “STORY MAPS: How to Write a GREAT Screenplay.” This ebook breaks down 12 GREAT MOVIES, primarily from the past decade, into the detailed but easy-to-follow structural analysis known as the Story Map.

95% of great movies follow the story map, so it follows that every serious screenwriter should study beat sheets of successful screenplays from master screenwriters.

Juno (Teen Comedy/Drama) 2007
The Social Network (Biopic) 2010
Hustle & Flow (Music Drama) 2007
Raiders of the Lost Ark (Action/Adventure) 1981
Black Swan (Thriller) 2010
Sex and the City (Romantic Comedy) 2008
Meet The Parents (Comedy) 2000
The Matrix (Sci-Fi Action) 1999
Rain Man (Drama) 1988
Rocky (Sports Drama) 1977
Up (Animated Comedy/Action) 2009
X-Men (Superhero “Origin” Action) 2000

These hit movies are great examples of professional screenwriting and rock-solid story structure in many different genres and budget levels aimed at varied audiences. The author, a professional Story Analyst with major movie studio experience, stands by each title as a strong example of its genre and as a primer to learn the screenwriting craft at the level that you need to be: the “submission ready” tier that makes a good script into a GREAT SCRIPT.

The purpose of learning to story map is simple: to help you improve your craft and increase your odds of getting your script to impress a decision-maker in Hollywood. That’s it.

The Elements of Journalism, Revised and Updated 3rd Edition: What Newspeople Should Know and the Public Should Expect

Revised and updated with a new preface and material on the rise of social media, the challenges facing printed news, and how journalism can fulfill its purpose in the digital age.
Seventeen years ago, the Committee of Concerned Journalists gathered some of America’s most influential newspeople to ask the question, “What is journalism for?” Through exhaustive research, surveys, interviews, and public forums, they identified the essential elements that define journalism and its role in our society. The result is this, one of the most important books on the media ever written, and winner of the Goldsmith Book Award from Harvard, the Society of Professional Journalists award, and the Bart Richards Award from Penn State University.
Updated with new material covering the rise of social media, sponsored content, a new, collaborative web-based journalism in which anyone—professional or citizen—can produce news, and much more, this third edition of The Elements of Journalism is an essential read for journalists, students, and anyone hoping to stay informed in the digital age.

Everything We Keep: A Novel

A luminous debut with unexpected twists, Everything We Keep explores the devastation of loss, the euphoria of finding love again, and the pulse-racing repercussions of discovering the truth about the ones we hold dear and the lengths they will go to protect us.

Sous chef Aimee Tierney has the perfect recipe for the perfect life: marry her childhood sweetheart, raise a family, and buy out her parents’ restaurant. But when her fiancé, James Donato, vanishes in a boating accident, her well-baked future is swept out to sea. Instead of walking down the aisle on their wedding day, Aimee is at James’s funeral—a funeral that leaves her more unsettled than at peace.

As Aimee struggles to reconstruct her life, she delves deeper into James’s disappearance. What she uncovers is an ocean of secrets that make her question everything about the life they built together. And just below the surface is a truth that may set Aimee free…or shatter her forever.
