The Heroine‘s Journey to a Happy Ending
In these trying times our local Bookdragon SandyJ and countless readers around the globe take refuge in magical stories with happy endings. These stories are often based on a distinct and largely unknown narrative structure: the Heroine‘s Journey.
The new non-fiction book by Fantasy author (and Archeologist) Gail Carriger is written for authors and readers to get to know and use this narrative structure appropriately.
So join us on Sunday, November 8, at 7 p.m. on our stream to find the structure of positive stories and where to look for those stories.
On the podcast platforms you’ll find this episode on Monday, noon-ish.
