The Story Tender Notebook

::order here::

(link also in the menu above)

The Notebook is intended for books that will be a part of a series, a “story bible.” I start your Notebook with the first book in the series, allowing you to continue on yourself with subsequent books.

It will be created in Google Sheets, a series of sheets and trackers designed to not only keep track of series details, but to assist in writing your novels.


You will be able to duplicate any of these pages to be used for subsequent books within the series.
