I loved this post from Bonnie Grove over at Novel Matters and wanted to share it with you all. Go read it and then come back. I'll wait right here.
Ok?? Did you read it??
So, what do you think? Is she right? What do you look for in a novel? Story or excellent writing?
I know of several authors that came to mind as I was reading her post. They are great storytellers but not necessarily excellent writers. And you know what? Judging from their sales it doesn't matter. What people want is exactly what Bonnie said... they want to get lost in a great story.
I sure do hope they get lost in mine this summer! :)
