Writing for Publication: How to Hook Your Reader!

This is a post that will go up at a library site and in newspapers in Waco, Texas for a teaching gig I'm doing June 6 for teens interested in writing.

Writing for Publication: How to Hook Your Reader!

Have you ever wondered how your favorite YA authors created such intriguing stories? Do you want to know how to have fun creating your own?

Come join me to learn how to hook a reader with conflict and intrigue. To create characters that your readers fall in love with. To create a believable world.

Come prepared to write, to talk, but most of all to have fun!

Terry Spear/Terry Lee Wilde is an award-winning published local author who writes both for young adults and adults in the area of paranormal romantic suspense and historical romantic suspense. She’s also written true stories for a number of magazines, including Listen Magazine for teens. Heart of the Wolf, an adult werewolf romantic suspense, made Publishers Weekly Best Books of the Year, and she was recently interviewed by a book club in France and has been asked to present a writing workshop in the fall in Toronto.

When she’s not presenting online writing workshops, writing new books, and speaking about writing and the publication process, she creates teddy bears that have found homes all over the world and that have been featured in magazines, and also works at the RB Hoover library.

Did you know that Amelia Atwater-Rhodes and Christopher Paolini were published teen authors? Or that Clive Barker was 11 when he wrote his first published book?

Sometimes I think I waited too long! I've been making up stories since I was a kid, but I never thought of writing for publication!

Give it a thought! If you love to make up stories, you might be a successful published author some day just like they are!
