What makes a story a "page-turner"? It takes more than action, more than beautiful prose. Making the reader unable to put your book down until three in the morning takes an understanding of structure, of how to build up to a hook and then place it right at the spot where the reader might otherwise slip their bookmark in for the night. Good writing has a rhythm--give the reader a chance to have an emotional response and then drag them to the next high point. In his 1974 craft book Techniques of the Selling Writer, Dwight Swain laid out a method for structuring prose that many selling writers still swear by decades later.
