As I research more and more about self publishing (I know it’s taboo, just like Prologue’s), I tend to see the same suggestions for the story: Kick start it quick. Really? Of course I am biased toward my writing, but I feel my story is interesting without jumping right into action. Can I just let it build up? What are your true thoughts on this and have you ever read someone’s first work and it didn’t have a ‘hook’ at the beginning and you appreciated the overall story?
