Episode 312: All the Feels - Widening the Appeal of Your Writing with Feel Good Moments

February 4, 2022

Have you ever read a book that included all the tropes, story and character types you love, and yet found it didn't work for you? Have you read books in genres that you typically don't like, and loved them without really understanding why? How do some authors pull off the trick of having readers follow them cross genre, and how can we as authors do the same? This week, Jules and Madeleine take a look at broad reader appeal in storytelling terms and how you can make it work for you. Whether you write the bleakest of dystopian fiction, the most nihilistic horror or the fluffiest romance, you too can lead your readers Pied Piper style across all the genres you want to write. (At least some of your readers, anyway!)

Join the dragons to find out how in this week's episode
