Tips for the First Three Pages

Time for some lateral thinking outside of the pants box.

As a follow on from the previous post, ROMANTIC TIMES has a number of articles on ‘Tips for the First Three Pages’ .

Jessica Faust, an agent with Bookends LLC, was asked to critique the opening three pages of manuscripts sent to Romantic Times.

The texts are slightly different in tone and style- and context.

There are SEVEN articles in all, with key tips after each one.

Challenge? I read this article several weeks ago.

Today I want to go through the manuscripts, note down my own take aways, then see how Jessica [ a very well known and respected US agent] sees the same text.

Should be interesting. I want my first pages and first chapter to be as compelling and emotionally engaging as possible.

All grist to the mill, girls, all grist to the mill.
