Perfect Hook: J. Evanovich, One for the Money

Here’s a great hook by Janet Evanovich:

There are some men who enter a woman’s life and screw it up forever. Joseph Morelli did this to me—not forever, but periodically.

 What makes it good?

  • It’s universal. What woman, by say her mid twenties, can’t relate?
  • It speaks to the books target market.
  • It states the name of the hero and alludes to him being a catch.
  • It begs the question, how did he screw up her life – periodically?
  • It uses a simple sentence structure.

About Faye Lynn

Barefoot and Breathless is a contemporary romance, chick-lit, women's fiction novel about a single mother looking for love, dealing with her son's growing independence, overcoming a past abusive relationship, trying to stay true to her morals, and teaching in a public at-risk school. It's a light, fun read with a writing style of Rachel Gibson meets Janet Evanovich. Like the heroine in Barefoot and Breathless, I'm a teacher, yogi, and single mother. I hope you enjoy reading my posts, and I look forward to reading your comments. Carpe Diem, Faye Lynn
