How To Keep Readers Interested With Internal Conflict

The Manuscript Academy Podcast


We’re thrilled to welcome Bobby Finger, whose book, The Old Place, is so full of twists and turns—many of them with internal, past, and multi-layered conflict—that we had a terrible time not spoiling the ending for you! (Yes, you’ll hear several shout-outs that will make sense if you read the book.)

We also talk about symbols (the potato salad!), towns as characters, and how literary fiction needs different qualities to keep readers hooked.

Bobby Finger is a writer and co-host of the popular celebrity and entertainment podcast, Who? Weekly. A Texas native, he lives in Brooklyn, New York. The Old Place is his debut novel.
