Rivet Your Readers with Deep Point of View by Jill Elizabeth Nelson



You won't often see writing how-to books featured on Net's Book Notes, but I couldn't resist since this one is such a great tool! It's free SATURDAY, JUNE 9TH FOR KINDLE at this link: http://amzn.to/KaOxrA

Here's a note from the author:

Dear Novelist: Would you like your readers to live your stories, not merely read them? Deep Point of View anchors your readers inside the point of view character(s) of your novel. This handbook shows you how to perform the transformation from ordinary narrative to deep narrative in clear, easy-to-master steps. I invite you to sweep your writing to the next level with a technique that creates immediacy and intimacy with your readers and virtually eliminates show/don't tell issues. My Best to You, Jill

And now, my review:

This book is like Fiction 101 where POV is concerned. So helpful! Jill breaks down the basics and goes beyond that to give you key lessons in deep POV. She makes sense out of distant POV. And the book offers workbook-type pages where you get to practice the lessons. She also gives plenty of examples to illustrate her pointers. Plus, you can get through the book in one sitting because it reads very fast. 

As a writer and an editor, I haven’t seen a book on POV like this before. I will be recommending this one to clients and writing buds for a long time to come. I’ve already recommended it to my current client and critique partners. Thanks, Jill, for such a comprehensive tool!

Highly recommended to writers and editors!
