Again at the polishing HOC task this morning, trying to fit it into my busy life, erggg!

Will be trading the first five pages with other writers tonight at the UCD extension group to give each other critiques based on the advice in THE FIRST FIVE PAGES by Noah Lukeman, a great book I look forward to rereading *:)


  1. The first five pages of a book are pretty important in grabbing and hooking a reader, I agree. I've just purchased a couple of books by an author who attends our church - only just found out that he is an author! Stephen Done is his name, 'Smoke gets in your eyes' is the title of his first one of a trilogy of crime novels set in the 1940's. He self-published, but his books are now on Obviously I've told him about you and your novel.

  2. Fascinating--maybe we could meet when we come over?
