It is all very well to be able to write books, but can you wiggle your ears?
A friend of mine has just finished reading my third novel, Helter Skelter. Today we were having a coffee (well, he was drinking weird tea and I had a fairly lacklustre mocha) and he described a scene in my story as “Waco, with pigs.”
Firstly, I think he should get a job writing sleeve notes immediately.
Secondly, forget elevator pitches: how would you describe your novel or story in three words? And what three word pitch would you simply have to read?
