Part of being a successful author is knowing not just how to write a compelling story, but writing one that checks all the boxes for your readers too!
If you fail to meet readers’ expectations within your genre, it doesn’t matter how much time and effort you’ve poured into your book, readers might not give you another chance.
For instance, romance readers want happy endings and readers of traditional mysteries don’t want graphic violence or sex.
In “Write for Your Readers: Give ‘em What They Want,” you’ll learn how to analyze readers’ expectations in your genre, and to apply what you learn to character development and plotting.

Do you know
what your readers want?
In your efforts to write a story that’s meaningful and interesting, it’s deceptively easy to forget your audience. Readers come to your work with specific expectations. Fail to meet those expectations at your own peril!
