Flake-out Friday–The Magic Is In the Details

It’s important to weave details throughout your novel. But man, it’s way easier said than done.

That’s what makes reading other authors’ work so important.

A fine example is Peter Abrahams Down the Rabbit Hole. It’s a middle grade mystery but reads like any good, solid, intricate masterpiece that I can think of. Abrahams’ talent lies particularly in the art of sprinkling his plot with details that keep the reader reading.

Seriously, it’s a brilliant read.

What novels have you read that have fine tuned detail weaving?
