In today’s episode, Kirthana Ramisetti joins Bianca, Carly, and CeCe to critique Books with Hooks submissions, while also talking about her latest novel, Advika and the Hollywood Wives.
During the episode, they discuss the importance of the 'why' behind plot points; the need for external as well as internal plot points; 'seducing' the reader; mastering the rules before you break them; starting with a ‘there I was, minding my own business’ opening; how to make an opening compelling and page turning when you don’t begin with high stakes; varying your chapter lengths for a very specific reason; and how genre-blending books get pitched.
