This podcast is for beginning writers AND for those who have a pile of thanks but no thanks rejections sitting in their inbox. It is for the novice writer with an inkling of a book idea AND for those who've heard crickets from the queries they've sent out. It is for those who dream of being on a bestseller list or winning a major book award AND for those who want to write the best book possible and to see where it takes them. Hosted by Sandra O'Donnell and Judd Vowell, Your First Fifteen Pages is the help you need to make your book a success. As a book coach and literary agent Sandra knows what it takes to go from a good story to a great story and from being an unsigned writer to an author with an agent and a book contract. Judd's writing journey began with a dystopian trilogy, that didn't take Amazon by storm, but did garner a small following. Judd shares his writing experience and how his writing has changed since discovering Your First Fifteen Pages and through his work with Sandra.In each episode of Your First Fifteen Pages, Sandra and Judd unlock the mystery of what it takes to capture and hold the interest of agents, editors, and ultimately readers. We show you how to perfect your first fifteen pages and use them as the foundation for the rest of your story. If you are struggling with a manuscript, we show you how to fix problems and move your writing forward. If you are a new writer, we show you how to get started and make your first novel agent worthy from the start.
