Pacing: Keeping the Action Going

Conference Workshop

For a thriller novel, it's all about the pacing, so that readers keep turning the pages long past their bedtimes. But a fast pace doesn't necessarily mean constant action; a great roller coaster ride is as much about the suspenseful build-up of tension as it is about the thrills. Boyd Morrison, whose adventure novels have been featured on the Indie Next list and have earned starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and RT Book Reviews, will explore how to balance a breakneck storytelling speed with the character conflict and setting details that make a compelling novel.
