My novel has received a great response from its readers so far, including an endorsement by [Famous Author], which he has given me permission to use:
"[This writer] reveals his metropolitan world -- with an intimacy and power few of us would otherwise be priviliged to share. This sensitively written and fast-paced tale will lure you in for an exciting ride."
-- [Famous Author], author of [cool book] (Random House)
The protagonist Davis Jarvey is a talented painter who unwittingly makes a Faustian pact. His conflict begins when he meets John, a wealthy autograph dealer. Set in New York and London, the book deals with the artist's dilemma in a very entertaining way; and the reader is taken on a suspenseful journey into the world of theatre, art, and gay love. [Title] is a novel of ideas -- and I think you'll find it to be quite an original.
I think you'll find the hook model helpful.
I loathe people telling me what I'll think of their book. They are 99 out of 100 times wrong; not just wrong but REALLY wrong.
