“The insight regarding character, dialog and story foundation are elegantly presented and the 23 actions provide a wonderfully clear blueprint for storytelling.  I particularly liked the discussion of Fresh News.   Many books and websites tell you that each scene must compel the reader (or viewer) to the next. This book provides a clear explanation on how to achieve this essential objective. In his seminars, Eric suggests writers should play with words the way a sculptor plays with clay. The Story Solution provides the wire mesh on which to support the clay.” – Robert Cartland

“Brilliant. Invaluable for writers and filmmakers. This book will change the way screenwriting is taught.” Michael Hauge, best-selling author, script consultant to Will Smith

“The Rosetta stone for translating story ideas into powerful screenplays.”  – Steve White, President, New World Feature Films

“Laser sharp insight. I could not imagine a more thoughtful and thorough analysis of screenwriting.”  – Michael Peretzian, Senior Vice President,  The William Morris Agency

“A brilliant presentation…tremendously valuable to writers everywhere.”   – Michael Wiese, director, producer, publisher

“Remarkable. Strikes off into new territory.”  – Tom Rickman, Academy Award nominated screenwriter, Coal Miner’s Daughter

“Like discovering a new continent. May well be the best cure for writer’s block ever written.” – Jessica Davis Stein, novelist, Coyote Dreams

“Demystifies storytelling and lays out a clear path to a Hollywood sale.” – Erica Byrne, screenwriter,  La Femme Nikita, Hunter



  • Cara Russell

    My first TV movie aired last October & I have more projects in the works, and none of them would have happened without Eric Edson’s The Story Solution book and classes. Thank you for the best screenwriting book out there.

  • Thanks Cara, I’m deeply proud of you. And thank you for letting us know. All very best wishes for your burgeoning career as a screenwriter. Go get ’em! –Eric
