Joanna Penn’s latest podcast guest shared a fantastic quote from Mickey Spillane in his appearance: “The first chapter sells your book, the last chapter sells your next book.”

And when James Scott Bell sought to follow this advice as a new writer, he discovered that while there was no shortage of how-to-hook-’em books, precious few explained how to end with a bang.

So Bell wrote that book — and he shares much of his insight on writing unforgettable endings on The Creative Penn.
