If you want to get an agent interested in your book, you've got to keep them interested, which is why the first few pages of your novel are critical. If you don't drop the reader into the inciting incident - and make it as gripping as possible - an agent - and a reader - will put down your book. The key is structure - what to show, when to show it, and what not to show. In this OnDemand webinar Chris Mooney explains how to do this and, most importantly, how to avoid the common pitfalls.


Hailed as “one of the best thriller writers working today” by Lee Child and “a wonderful writer” by Michael Connelly, Chris Mooney is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Walk in My Combat Boots, written with James Patterson. His other books include ER Nurses and Blood World. His fourth book, The Missing, the first in the Darby McCormick series, was a main selection of the International Book of the Month Club and an instant bestseller in over thirteen countries. The Mystery Writer’s Association nominated Chris’s third book, Remembering Sarah, for an Edgar Award for Best Novel. Foreign rights to his novels have been sold to twenty-eight territories. He has sold nearly two million copies of his books. Chris teaches writing courses at Harvard and the Harvard Extension School. He lives in the Boston area with his wife and son.
