"Something Startling Happens is a dazzling new nuts-and-bolts story guide that reveals the extremely important "in betweens" left out in other screenwriting books. Klick's book is the perfect companion to Blake Snyder's Save The Cat."
John Phillip Dayton Executive Producer, Director, Writer, The Waltons, Eight Is Enough, Matlock, The Ray Bradbury Theatre
“I just discovered Something Startling Happens and devoured it! Wow! What a fantastic work! Thanks Todd for inspiring me with new ways to fix some of my story problems.”
—Barry Cutler Writer
“I have read many popular screenwriting books from Save the Cat to Write Screenplays that Sell: The Ackerman Way. As a student of the craft, Todd Klick's book was the first screenwriting book that really broke down the finite art of what all of the great movies have in common.”
