Dear Author: Please DON'T...


While reading some book reviews on Amazon earlier today, I came across a fascinating thread titled Dear Author: Please DON'T... in the Amazon Romance Community message board.

I was impressed with some of the feedback contained in that thread of what its posters think works and doesn't work when writing novels. Have a look, and if you have tips of your own, feel free to add them.

  1. Just reading the first page would change the way some authors write.

    I've given up on exotic names, male and female. If I can't pronounce it, I won't use it.

  2. LOL, I never saw the attraction of exotic names in novels (except a rare few I could pronounce). These days, it's easier to keep names of protagonists simple =)
