Dear Author: What are the most important words you’ll ever write?
Perhaps the line that grabs the reader by the short and curlies and never lets him go.
Or the last, page-turning paragraph of Chapter 1 (and, for that matter, every other chapter) that leaves the reader begging for more.
Or, it could be the covering letter to New York’s #1 agent that gets you that mouth-watering contract.
And how about the “blurb” that excites book-buyers so much that they take it straight to the checkout counter.
Or . . . as you’ll see, none of the above. . . .
