I love stories.

I listen to them. I watch them on TV, videos, or movies. I read them.

And I write them.

I’ve written almost every kind of story there is. Mystery, romance, confession, science fiction, fantasy, paranormal, horror, and every other kind I can think of and garnered a couple prizes and ‘best-selling’ author designations along the way.

I’ve written short stories, novellas, and novels.

In the process I’ve learned that my favorite stories are science fiction and paranormal. Preferably the two combined.

My stories are always clean, they are always either contemporary or near future, they always have at least a slight romantic element, and they always end happily. Always. Guaaranteed. (Okay, two short stories, ‘The River Boy’ and ‘Down From The Mountain’ have endings that might not be considered completely happy. Maybe just somewhat happy. You decide.)

Check out the covers below and see what you think. And have a happy, happy day.

Should I write my next novel in third person or first?

Consider two things when deciding whether to write your next novel in third person or first.

  1. Which way are you most comfortable telling the story? Some stories naturally lend themselves to either first or third person, usually due to the complexity or simplicity of the story.
  2. Which person do most stories similar to yours use to tell the story? Readers expect a story to be similar enough to others of the same genre that they will react negatively to something different. And, if you are going with a traditional publisher, they may require that your story be written one way or another, again depending on how it’s usually done in the particular genre you’re writing in.

One response to “Should I write my next novel in third person or first?”
