POV - Point of View - Marianne Mancusi

POV – Point of View – Who’s Head Are You In? Which Character’s Point Of View are you following? I prefer Deep Third Person and that’s what all my books are written in. I am usually either in the hero or the heroine’s head, depending upon the scene.

But First Person, “I,” books are certainly selling well these days, and an author who does first person brilliantly is chick-lit writer, Marianne Mancusi in her first book, A Connecticut Fashionista in King Arthur’s Court. Read the blurb, then do yourself a favor and read the excerpt and buy the book!

Love to all,

Once upon a time there lived an outspoken fashion editor named Kat, who certainly was not your typical damsel in distress. But when a gypsy curse sent her back in time to the days of King Arthur, she found she'd need every ounce of her 21st century wits (and pop culture references) to navigate the legend. After all, surviving a magical plot, an evil prince, and a case of mistaken identity--all without changing history or scuffing your Manolos--takes some doing!

Luckily, she's got her very own knight in shining armor, Lancelot du Lac, on her side. The honorable-to-a-fault and devastatingly handsome champion insists on helping her out, even though she's not quite sure she wants him to. After all, shouldn't he be off romancing Queen Guenevere or something? Will Kat manage to stay out of trouble long enough to get back to her beloved cafi lattes, cosmopolitans and cashmere? And what will Lancelot's forbidden love mean for the kingdom of Camelot?

In terms of my writing, I prefer 3rd person, but I'm reading some great 1st person books these days. Yes Marianne's book does look wonderful :)

And an author can experiment with different POVs, I haven't, but maybe someday...
