With Tiffany Reisz.

The first chapter of a novel is what sells the book. Learn how to hook your readers with a strong opening chapter that’ll keep them turning pages until the end. Also, we’ll discuss what not to do in a first chapter to avoid getting tossed out of the slush pile as well as how to keep the story momentum going from beginning to THE END. [ALL LEVELS] [ONE-TIME]
