(inside the Coffee Press at Paseo Verde Library in Green Valley Ranch)
Topic: The Hook & the Cliffhanger: How To Keep Readers Hanging On
We will discuss examples from books that aren’t mysteries to illustrate the importance of hooks
and cliffhangers in all types of writing. Moderated by WSN Member Suzanne Munshower.
Suzanne is the author or ghostwriter of more than 30 books. Her work has been published by major houses in eight countries and six languages. Her books include a biography of Princess Margaret, Promote Your Way to Success (a self-help business book), the popular Simply Sophisticated: What Every Worldly Person Needs to Know, and the best-selling 2015 thriller, Younger (Thomas & Mercer). A former public relations consultant and magazine editor, she has ghostwritten for people ranging from fashion designers to psychiatrists. She currently ghostwrites independently and through three leading ghostwriting agencies. Don’t miss what promises to be a very entertaining and informative discussion! Bring your favorite examples of hooks and cliffhangers from either your favorite authors or your own work.
This is going to be an open forum discussion where everyone will be encouraged at the end to talk about their favorite hooks and cliffhangers (bring examples!) and how they use them in their own writing.
