Welcome!

I just saw this, been busy. The first step is to try it yourself. Look at Blake's beat sheets in GTTM and the newer ones on the other side of this site and follow the pattern for The Firm. ...

Try fleshing out Act III with Executing The Plan, Dig Deep Down, etc. I recall enough of the ending to ...

I should mention this is a romance novel.
