Keep readers turning the pages…

Tension is what keeps readers up all night, frantically turning the pages of your story. Without it, they’ll set the book aside and get a great night’s sleep, and who wants that? As an author, your job is to keep dangling another tasty bit of story cheese (aka tension) in front of them, to keep pulling them further and further into your story. Whether you’re a new author or a seasoned professional, we’ll discuss various ways to use tension to keep readers glued to the pages.
