Villain's Point Of View

Unlike a VICTIM'S Point of View, which I find rarely adds to a book, I think villains' point of view can be very interesting.

It is also a technique to add to suspense and vary pacing -- the reader knows the villain has PLANS even as the protagonists continue on their way.

Though I have never actually written a villain's point of view, I like reading them.

A short blog today, and when the brain is less foggy from revisions, I hope to add more on this topic.

May you enjoy all the characters you meet today--and meet no villains beyond pages or film...

Yes, I know it's up, thank you!
Not sure about mainstream, should be romance, because it is, otherwise it is fantasy. How have the ebook stores not kept up with brick and mortar?

Thanks again,

Not sure, but it's not just you. The new Riley Jensen novel is listed under mainstream, too.

Heck even Nora Roberts, new In Death novel is listed mainstream. So I guess your in good company at least!
