Rewards Per Page!

Oh my goodness! You don’t want to miss this!

In Seekerville today, Vince Mooney is talking about why it’s so important to reward your reader on every page of your novel. Vince does a great job of explaining his philosophy – which by the way is the name of his blog, Philosophy of Romance – and then follows up with awesome examples of Rewards Per Page in action.

Just to give you an idea of the substance of this post, Vince says:

I have over 1,200 eBooks on my Kindle. At least 95% of these books were free downloads. Many were selected only because I knew that they might be offered as free for just a day or two. Since I knew that at some point in the future I might want to read any of these books, I downloaded them when I had the opportunity. While I own these books, I have no investment in them. I probably will never read 90% or more of my Kindle books unless I encounter a good reason to read them beyond simply owning them. Such a good reason might come about if an author or a review makes the book seem like something I would really want to read. 

Isn’t that what we want? To invest the reader in our books? I mean really invest in our books…in us. I’m like Vince, I have tons of free downloads on my Kindle, but how many of those have I read, much less been so enthralled I’ve gone searching for more books by the author?

When I publish my series, I want to share the best of who I am with my readers. I want to say thank you to my reader on every page of my book — at least once on every page, if not multiple times.

Vince Mooney knows his stuff. Take a moment and drop in on his party in Seekerville. Read the post and leave a comment. You’ll be glad you did!!
