Hooking the Reader Effectively

Hooks. How many times do you hear people ask the question - what's your hook?

Do you know what your hook is? How many hooks do you have, and how many do you need? Are they in the right places? And for that matter, what the hell is a hook anyway?

For answers to these questions and more, check out my guest post for Sherry Soule (@WriterSherry) here.
Not this kind of hook - although I suppose it might work!

This was another informative post. I really love hooks where there is a change in POV. There are a few books that I am so hooked by the end of one POV section that I almost want to skip the next POV to see character's next thought but then I keep reading and I get drawn into that POV. When this happens, I usually give up on the idea of sleep and finish the book.
