The hook. One of the most important aspect to an entire book is the hook.
You have to hook the reader from the first sentence, first paragraph, first page, first scene, first chapter, and even at the beginning of each scene or chapter. It’s what catches the reader’s attention and draws them further into the story to where they will want to read more and more.
However, if you don’t have a great hook, the chances are you may have lost your reader before they’ve even given you story a chance, and you might have a fantastic novel. Unfortunately, the reader will never find out because the hook didn’t grab them.
