Coming TODAY : Five Sentences to Impress.
This NEW category won’t be a review section so much as a ‘this is why I picked the book up’ or ‘this is why I didn’t ‘ section.
Here’s my truth: if an author doesn’t capture my interest within the first paragraph, I am probably not going to give your book a chance. Unfortunately, I am not the only reader/writer who thinks this way.
‘The first five’ don’t have to be all content or action driven. Most times, I can tell if I will like an author based on the cadence of their prose. I will admit that this section is going to be full of paranormal/Urban Fantasy romance books both YA and A because that’s what I read. Occasionally though, I might throw in a fabulous first five from another genre. You never know! I’m crazy like that. LOL.
The point of this section will be to let readers/writers know where ‘the first five’ went right or where they went wrong.
So, cheers to a new category. Because, you know, I didn’t have enough to do or anything. 🙂 LOLLOL
