About this audiobook

The beginning is the most important part of your book. The first chapter-probably even the first page-is what makes agents and editors accept or reject a manuscript, and it's what makes readers decide to buy a book or pick another. But writing a compelling opening is hard because there are so many things a great beginning needs to do and so many mistakes to avoid.

In this book, Sandra Gerth draws on her experience as an editor and best-selling author to teach you where to start your novel, how to avoid common first chapter problems, and how to hook your readers from the very first page.

Each chapter of this practical guide includes concrete examples and exercises that will help you write an irresistible beginning. Whether you're a novice writer working on your first story or an established author with several novels under your belt, this book will help you:

- Decide where to start your book,

- Understand important elements of every powerful opening such as the inciting incident,

- Write a kickass first line,

- Hook your readers from the very first page.
