Your Novel's First 50 Pages

The First 50 Pages by Jeff Gerke probably is one of the best writing reference books I have read. It is littered with different coloured post it notes sticking out the side for a quick jump back into it at any time. Why one of the best books? Oh dear, where do I begin? It’s the kind of book you want to read and re-read and re-read. You want to force every sentence to stay permanently fixed in your writing head.

Ok, I’ll begin by saying this book is intended to help all aspiring novelists and writers and authors to hook both their reader and a potential publisher in the first 50 pages. That said, it has so much writing advice for your whole novel or scriptwriting project not just 50 mere pages.

Compelling opening scenes will be your key to catching an agent or editor’s attention and of course crucial to keeping your reader … well, reading. Jeff Gerke sets out to ensure you know to begin your novel with the skill and intention to land you a book deal and keep reader’s eyes glued to every page. But he doesn’t just do that. He arms any wannabe novelist with all the fire-power to create a page turning story.
