Meet the Editors Podcast Debut: The “Aha” Moment – The End of Predictability in Romance Writing
The “Aha” moment is the point in your manuscript at which an editor becomes excited by your story, because you’re written something unpredictable. You may be writing within a popular romance theme like the marriage of convenience or secret baby plot, but you’ve done something new, fresh, original. You have piqued the editor’s interest, and even if there are some problems within the story the editor will keep reading with interest. If you’ve caught the editor’s attention then you will most likely capture readers’ attention as well when the book is published so that they want to read your next book. Your book sells well. The editor wants to buy your next book. That predictable cycle continues as long as you keep adding in the “aha” moments.
How do you do this? Editors Kathleen Scheibling and Wanda Ottowell reveal how to write unpredictable stories within a genre in today’s podcast.
