If you read my novels, you can experience many lives, share adventures, and feel emotions you may never get to experience in real life.
If you don’t read books, you live only one life, a solo adventure.
My novels have many sub-plots interwoven with the main storyline that keep you guessing.
If the reader can out-guess the author about where the story is going, the reading experience becomes boring.
I don’t want you to be bored . . .
Happy Reading In 2019
My List of Ingredients for a
1. The story should have one or more “larger than life” characters. Memorable characters give the reader a “hook” to remember the story and can give you the feeling you know the characters personally.
2. If the story has many characters, repeat their names and associate them with their title or job to help the reader keep them straight. Novels are confusing when you can’t remember who someone is and their relationship to the story.
3. The story should have several sub-plots woven into the main plot to make the story more interesting. It helps keep a fast pace throughout the novel.
4. The novel should be sprinkled with enough facts to make the story ring true. Well written fiction should have enough facts to give you the feeling it is a real-life story and could be believable.
5. It should have many unexpected twists and surprising turns . . . the reader should never be able to get ahead of the author and predict the outcome.
6. Keep the action moving . . . make the reader keep turning the pages to see what happens next.
7. When the situation seems to be approaching a resolution, inject a new crisis. It’s called “turning up the heat.”
8. Let the characters tell the story and keep it in active voice . . . long paragraphs of passive voice descriptions will tend to bore most readers.
9. Characters should each have a different voice . . . they should also use different words, e.g. adjectives and nouns to give them a personality.
