The Complete Writer's Guide to Heroes and Heroines: Sixteen Master Archetypes by Tami D. Cowden

All fiction writers want to write stories with great heroes and heroines -- characters who leap off the page and capture the reader's imagination. Heroic characters can be broken down into sixteen archetypes. By following the guidelines of the archetypes presented in this comprehensive reference work, writers can create extraordinarily memorable characters and elevate their writing to a higher level. Throughout the book, the authors give examples of well-known heroes and heroines from television and film so the reader can picture the archetype in his or her mind. At the very core of a character, every hero can be traced back to one of eight molar archetypes, as can every heroine. The core archetype tells the writer the most basic instincts of heroes or heroines -- how they think and feel, what drives them and how they reach their goals. Whether you are a seasoned professional or a novice, this book will help you to improve your own writing and help you to create truly unforgettable characters.
