An Analysis of Clockwork Dagger’s First Scene

Posted by on Jul 7, 2014 in Blog, clockwork dagger | 2 comments

I was surprised and delighted to see The Clockwork Dagger featured on today. This time, Michael R. Underwood analyzed the first scene of my book to show how and why it successfully hooked him.

As a reader, I love these sorts of insights into books I’ve already read. I usually find myself nodding as I come to some new understanding about the novel. Now, to have this kind of analysis done to my own book? I kinda geeked out. It’s just so cool.

You can still read the full first chapter over on Tor as well! Maybe it’ll hook you, if it hasn’t already.

  1. It definitely hooked me! So cool to see that analysis done on your own work. I’m excited to read the rest.

    • Yay! I’m excited for you to read the rest, too. 😀 Thank you so much.
