Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0993700411, Paperback)Are you looking for techniques to really bring your fiction to life for the readers, so they feel they’re right there, on the edge of their seats, struggling with the hero or heroine? Staying up late at night, worrying, glued to the pages? This guide provides specific advice, with examples, for captivating readers and immersing them in your story world. It’s all about providing a direct connection from the characters to the readers through techniques such as deep point of view, showing instead of telling, avoiding author intrusions, and basically letting the characters tell the story. Today’s readers want to put aside their cares and chores and lose themselves in an absorbing story. This book shows you how to provide the emotional involvement and immediacy readers crave in fiction. You’ll find techniques for making sure your characters come to life and your readers feel directly connected to them, without the author’s hand appearing as an intermediary. And like Jodie Renner's other writing guides, which are all designed for busy writers, the format of this one is reader-friendly, with text broken up by subheadings, examples, and lists.
