As part of my resolutions, I’m working on adding to and improving my fantasy novel, From Under the Mountain. I have a lot of ideas to work with, but I also wanted to poll you readers and find out what has made your favorite fantasy novels (or any novel, really) really stand out for you. I’ve asked for feedback like this before with battle scenes, but now I’m just talking about general story-telling. So, I pose the question to you:
Q. What do you look for in a novel? What gets you engaged and keeps your attention–romance, suspense, action, etc? Please be specific about your favorite kind of ______ or anything else you’ve found to be really interesting.
I look forward to hearing your responses! Share this around to your friends as well–the more responses, the better. Thanks!
