The Beginning Of A Book

"The first paragraph of a book flies the flag for the voice and heart that will keep you company through a story. If the heart does not speak to you, the story most definitely will not."

Ahead of her appearance at our How to Get Published conference in York, Claire North takes us through some key things to consider when writing the beginning of a book...  


Creating An Assassin


"A character, is in many ways a reflection of the writer, where they are in life, what is happening, what they are reading and consuming in the media, it's a hugely complex process."

RJ Barker shares his advice on creating characters and how he went about crafting an assassin for his debut novel Age of Assassins.

The Importance Of Asking Why


"You can take anything in the world – a woman quitting her job – and by obeying the logic of what that single starting point does, you can go anywhere. You can do anything. All that matters is stopping and asking why."

Author Claire North on how to develop the premise of a story, and where simply asking 'Why?' in a story can take you.


How To Make Your Book Pacey


"I like to think of a book as a succession of increasingly high waves. Build to a point where things happen, then have a lull, let people recover and build again, but this time to something a little more dramatic."

What are the ingredients a writer needs to perfectly pace their story? Author RJ Barker offers his thoughts.
