Last night Johnny Depp calls. Johnny Depp says is this Linda? I say yes. Johnny Depp says Linda Della Donna, author of "A Gift of Love?" I say yes yes yes. He says your agent is a friend of mine, he says your agent sent me your manuscript, he says we're thinking of making your book into a movie. Johnny Depp says can we meet for lunch?
Well, not really. But, now that I got your attention, remember this:
When you write a book, you got to have a hook.
Make your opening, first sentence, first paragraph, first word enticing, something to draw your reader in and keep them reading.
Time to pick up your pen and write something.
I dare you.
See you in print,
Linda Della Donna
