You can find David Baboulene at
and you can follow his tour at UK and Beyond Book Tours 

When I was asked to review THE STORY BOOK by David Baboulene, I was a bit leery. Reading books on the subject of writing can be iffy—is the book overloaded with information, will it tell me the rules, will it be a snoozer, or will I be left with a feeling of being overwhelmed? Then I read David’s credentials as a published author, scriptwriter, and PhD scholar in story theory and they impressed me enough to give it a go.

All of my fears were laid to rest. My first reaction was “Where was this treasure when I wrote my first story?” (You know the one; it’s now buried in the backyard.) THE STORY BOOK is the holy grail of writing books. It gives you the information using diagrams and examples from both movies and books that are easily identifiable. You are sure to walk away with an understanding of the foundation of what goes into a good story and the confidence to write something that is marketable.
