I’ve been an avid reader for much longer than I’ve been a writer, and I like all kinds of styles. First person, third person—I’m pretty much game for trying anything so long as it’s a) A romance, and b) Has a killer story. What I haven’t read a lot of are multi-point of view stories. So, it’s kind of bizarre that I chose a multi-character approach for my debut series.
Now, if you’re not sure what I’m talking about, point of view refers to the character who’s acting out any given scene in a story. In romance, it’s usually the heroine, but lots of stories these days encapsulate the hero’s view on the story as well. For the Eden Series, it goes a bit beyond our leading man and lady, including some key secondary characters as well as the dastardly bad guy.
The response has been rather intriguing. Most people have commented that they enjoy the expanded viewpoints, appreciating the nuances and additional depth their perspectives bring to the story. Still, there have been a few who’ve said they didn’t care for the approach. (Although, a lot of them have said it was because they wanted to hurry and get back to the romance…a point I completely understand.)
What about you? Have you read any recent stories that showed more than just the hero or heroine’s viewpoint? How did it work for you? Would you read more? Or would you prefer to keep to just the two key players? I’d love to hear your thoughts and learn any particular recommendations you have to share.
If you’ve never ready a multi-point of view story, I hope you’ll give the Eden Series a try. It’s a whole lot of fun, suspense, and yummy romance rolled up in a contemporary fantasy world that’s hard to pass up.
The only hope for saving their race is to surrender their hearts.
With a long foretold and annoyingly vague prophecy warning of immense change for Eden, Ramsay Shantos is forced to hunt words and legends instead of rebels. For a man of action, it’s the worst kind of agony. Until he encounters a sexy librarian who bears the fated prophecy’s mark. A mark no human should possess.
Tortured by her mixed heritage, Trinity Blair has enjoyed little human touch in her life, let alone intimacy. Even the most innocent contact fills her mind with a person’s deepest, darkest secrets—except for Ramsay. Her immunity to his thoughts sparks a fragile hope that she might finally experience the passion of her Dark Spiritu brethren…unless he’s the dangerous crossroads her father predicted.
When knowledge of Eden goes viral in the human realm, Trinity is Ramsay’s only hope for quelling mass panic. Can he risk revealing the secrets of his race to the guileless ray of sunshine? Or is she the unknown source of Eden’s destruction?
