Screenwriting Down to the Atoms: Digging Deeper into the Craft of Cinematic Storytelling, a guide for beginning and intermediate screenwriters on the unique and effective method to understanding cinematic storytelling I have developed over the past six years. At fourteen chapters and roughly 270 pages, it was written to be both comprehensive and compact. In-depth, yet easy to read. Both classic and extremely new.
Today I have released a new side-version of Atoms intended to make things even easier for developing writers. Screenwriting Down to the Atoms: The Absolute Essentials selects the four chapters that make up the core of Atoms - and by extension, the core of the entire SCRIPTMONK! method - and repackages them into a tight, roughly 50-page package that is available for download ABSOLUTELY FREE. The selected chapters, "The Basic of the Most Basic," "The Golden Key," "The Sequence Method," and "On Character" - though just a small part that contained in Atoms - represent the baseline of knowledge every writer really needs to know if he or she ever hopes to create a truly dramatic story that will engage its audience and give them the emotionally-satisfying experience they need.

At the time of this writing, Atoms: The Absolute Essentials is available only at Smashwords.com, where it is available for download (did I mention for FREE?) in ePub for iPad, Nook, Sony Reader and other devices, Kindle format, good old PDF, and even an RFT file (though I don't recommend it unless you like mangled formatting and randomly-placed Japanese characters).
If you don't like Smashwords, it will become available over the next week or two at Barne&Noble.com, the Apple iBookstore, Kobo, Diesel books, other Smashwords affiliates, and by the end of the month, Amazon.
(NOTE: The eBook is a brand spanking-new file, uploaded this very morning. If you experience anything screwy or glitchy with its presentation or formatting, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. I will appreciate it.)
