Wanna bait agents & editors? Your query letter needs a hook!
What the heck is a hook? Writers hear about the need for one in their query letters to agents and editors.

There’s no better way to focus the heart of a story than to summarize your novel with one pithy, make-me-wanna-look line.
So go here and soak in these hooks, and get a handle on what it means to be “high concept”: What’s a high concept hook?
