In today's episode, Bianca, Carly, and CeCe kick it back old school using the old classic 'Books with Hooks' format during which they discuss leaning into specificity in query letters; stating where you live when writing a query; needing a major dramatic question in a memoir; the importance of protagonist observations in a relationship-driven story; the need for a meaty hook in a memoir written by a non-famous person; and why you have to have curiosity seeds.
After which, CeCe interviews NYT bestselling author, Andrea Bartz, author of The Spare Room, about her latest novel; writing about the pandemic; using a psychology background to develop characters; and how the intentionality of verbs and language choices can elevate your work.
