A: Start of book. Establish main characters. State goals for hero and heroine. Get them together as soon as possible.
B: First barrier to attainment of goals. Confrontation? Things don’t look so rosy anymore.
C: First low point for both characters. This action can happen in the same chapter.
D: Whew! Barrier to goals drops temporarily. Things are looking up! A good time for a kiss.
E: A high point. Yes! Some goals are accomplished and life is good.
F: Then... Boom! The rug is unexpectedly pulled out from under the hero and heroine. Bad news for both.
G: Low point again. Catastrophe! The sky has fallen! Will the sun ever shine again?
H: Things improve, then there’s a setback. Uncertainly reigns. Will they or won’t they resolve their differences? High, low. High, low.
I: Resolution of conflict! All loose ends tied up. Attainment of goals! A happy ending!
And speaking of happy endings... my newest paranormal romance is now available at Amazon.com.

DÉjÀ WOO-WOO--Doctor Paul Jones, with his feet firmly planted on terra firma, has no patience for metaphysical matters. When a medical conference brings him to the New Age capital of the world, he keeps his distance from anything “woo-woo.” But when he’s attracted to a woman who insists they’d met before... Paul realizes he needs help--metaphysical help--to show him the way to win his Lovely Lizzie’s heart.
