"I like to tell authors that even if they’re not writing mysteries, they are writing mysteries. No matter what the genre, every book should have a component of mystery and suspense that makes readers want to keep going."
Simon Pulse Editor Sara Sargent and I spoke about the value of attending the SCBWI Summer Conference, the importance of tension, her breakout workshops and Monday conference intensive and much more.
It was a great discussion, and if you'd like to meet and learn from Sara in person, join us at the SCBWI Summer Conference, August 1-4, 2014. Registration and information here.
