About the webinar:

You only get one chance to make a first impression-and that one chance with a reader lasts only minutes. It is no longer acceptable for a book to "get good on page 40." From your "hook," the one-sentence logline you use to describe your book, to the first page of your novel, it's critical to grab the reader's attention immediately-whether that reader is an agent, editor, or consumer. Not only do you want to quickly pull readers in with your story idea, you also need to establish your narrative voice as compelling, believable, talented, and authoritative.


So how do you best accomplish this?


In this live webinar, instructor and literary agent Jessica Regel will show you how to grab your reader's attention with your hook and first page. Using real life examples from her own client list, Jessica will examine the hooks and first pages from published books to show you the dos and don'ts of opening your book and the common mistakes that drive agents crazy and stop them from reading the rest of your work.

What you'll learn:

How to write an attention grabbing one-line hook
When it's appropriate to compare your book to another book
Why it's important to hook the reader from the first page
Why a prologue may do you more harm than good
Common mistakes of first sentences and first pages
Overused beginnings and cliches that can drag down your work
The benefits and pitfalls of starting with action
