Written by New York Times Bestseller Dianna Love and USA Today bestseller Mary Buckham, Break Into Fiction® is a workshop-in-a-book and the one resource all writers need to master the art of fiction.

Getting a book published is hard enough, but what about building a loyal reader base? It’s been said that nothing sells a book – to an editor or a reader – faster than a great story.



Whether you’re a plotter or a pantser (write by the seat of your pants), Break Into Fiction® is the book that will help you find the weak spots (sagging middles, unlikeable characters, slow pacing and more) in your fiction stories. Editing is key to any story, but it starts with the author. Writing fast means nothing if the final story isn’t sound. But the sooner you grasp the power points for a story, the faster you’ll be able to build a strong backlist. Now you have a way to improve your writing one easy step at a time.



This book is based on the popular workshops Mary Buckham and Dianna Love taught in the US and internationally to beginning writers, multi-published authors and even a Pulitzer Prize winner.



Their innovative method shows writers how to create stories of depth, excitement, and emotion with:

• Easy-to-understand templates that guide the new writer through building a novel and show more experienced writers how to deepen a plot and take a first draft to the next level much more quickly

• Reference examples from strongly-plotted popular genre films of suspense, classics, children, and romance

• Simple worksheets to build a strong story through Character-Driven™ plotting for any genre

• Troubleshooting tips that reveal how to find and fix holes that weaken the plot

• Insights from best-selling novelists representing a variety of fiction genres

• A bonus dialogue guide that reveals how to make a character come alive through conversation.



Break Into Fiction® is here to help aspiring-to-bestselling authors with a step-by-step guide!

“These writers know their business and, what¹s more, know how to explain it. Break into Fiction® is solidly grounded in storytelling fundamentals, but then goes much farther into the practical detail that determines whether your book will bring a check or a rejection slip.”

Book 3 in New York Times Dianna Love's exciting and sexy Slye Temp romantic suspense series - reviewers are saying "…this series just keeps getting better."

Her only hope is in the hands of her enemy.

Slye Temp operative Margaux Duke is chasing an international terrorist who murdered the last of her family. But her plans go up in smoke when her agency is in the crosshairs of the dangerous killer, forcing her to turn rogue to protect the only family she has left - her team. This is no time to get involved, especially with an enemy who steps between her and the terrorist she has to stop.

Logan Baklanov has been known by many names in the underbelly of international terrorism and will do whatever it takes to shield those he loves from the treacherous world he lives in. When his brother’s life is in jeopardy, Logan takes on a role that places him at the top of the most-wanted lists of government security agencies in every country. He accepts the no-win situation, willing to make the ultimate sacrifice until a long legged beauty draws the attention of his deadly target and screws Logan’s carefully planned mission.

Margaux and Logan must join forces in a dangerous game to save a major city from a powerful psychopath, but their ruse escalates out of control when the heat smoldering between them threatens to explode.

"The books in this series just get better and better. I'm always curious what is going to happen in the next one. I never worry if it is going to be good because I know it will be, without a doubt."~~ Heather M

New York Times bestseller Dianna Love delivers all-night read with her new League of Gallize Shifter series. MATING A GRIZZLY is book two  in this new and unusual shifter romance series.   

Justin is an elite black ops warrior on a unique shifter team. He’s as deadly as they come and determined to succeed on every mission. He turns into a monster grizzly and rushes into danger without hesitation to do his duty … but he's having second thoughts on his current assignment. If there’s one thing he can’t tolerate it is arrogant people like the jerks he grew up around who acted superior to him.  Justin can’t believe he’s stuck playing bodyguard for a Russian shifter princess.  He’d rather face down a pack of armed terrorists alone than spend time with a cold-hearted prima donna. Except, Elianna turns out to be unlike anything he expected. She’s hot, but he’d like to see her smile. He’s on a mission to get that smile—and more. First he has to stop the assassin trying to kill him and kidnap her.    

Having lived her life as an outcast among her own kind, Elianna hates being called princess. She’s the ugly mistake of a Russian grizzly shifter who got her polar bear mother pregnant while on a sabbatical from his mate. With the exception of the little boy she saved after his clan abandoned him, men are the bane of Elianna’s life. When she makes a miscalculation under duress, her biological father coerces Elianna into accepting a deal with high stakes if she fails.  

Justin is unlike any other man, human or shifter, she’s ever been around. He makes her want things she can’t have—like mating—because the deal she struck prevents a relationship with him or she’ll never see the little boy again who is everything to her. Her plan was simple and doable, but meeting Justin complicated everything.

“GRAY WOLF MATE is a truly ground-breaking paranormal romance. Ms. Love is a writer who can conceive an innovative idea, and then cleverly bring it to life for readers to enjoy.” Always Reviewing (League of Gallize Shifters book 1)

Note: All the League of Gallize Shifter books are stand alone paranormal romances.
