How to Keep your Readers Reading

Our Craft Program

Join Emma Dhesi as she walks us keeping your readers reading.

The fear of not being good enough, or finding readers, is very real for many writers. The way to guarantee your story is good enough and that readers fall in love with your novel is to build a strong emotional connect between them and your character. That matters more than anything else.

Discover 3 ways to connect with your reader through your characters:

  • Do your character have a deep seated flaw?
  • What is the misbelief/wound that is keeping them back?
  • Are you putting it on the page?
