The book I am focusing on today is Double Duplicity, my first book in the Shandra Higheagle Mystery series.
The reason I picked this book to use for the first two pages is due to the fact I had to really “stew and brew” the beginning. I use the stewing and brewing process with all my books. However, because this was a new series, I wanted to capture the reader’s attention in the beginning while giving information to make the reader wonder about Shandra Higheagle. The beginning of the book had to do two things–Draw the reader in and make them interested in the main character.
Thanks for contributing this post, Paty! I enjoyed your comments about the way you gradually reveal information and draw the reader in.
Thank you for having me on your blog, B.K.
