Today is IWSG Day because it’s the first Wednesday in March. IWSG stands for Insecure Writers Support Group and was founded by Alex J. Cavanaugh. You can follow other IWSG members here or on twitter using the hashtag #IWSG. We also have a Facebook page. The purpose of IWSG is to share and encourage, and members have the option of answering questions in our post.
Today’s question is: Whose perspective do you like to write from best, the hero (protagonist) or the villain (antagonist)? And why?
I think I’ll pass on this month’s question. I’ve never written from the villain’s perspective but it’s an interesting thought. In fact, I might not be able to get it out of my head. Something to ponder.
Since I’m short on time, I thought I’d pass along a hint about book signings and how to display our books. Recently, a friend purchased a 4-tiered book signing rack that keeps her book table neat and displays her books in a way that shoppers can see them from “across a crowded room” and fall in love.
This rack costs about $37 bucks from Amazon. Mine arrived yesterday. Take a look at how I’m displayed. Can’t wait for my next book signing!
So two questions for you:
Do you often write from the villain’s perspective? Give us a tip or two.
And do you sell your books at festivals and craft shows? Share some advice you think others might need if they hit the road with their books.
