What a thrill!

I'm off to Thrillerfest!

If you happen to be in New York, come on down. I'll be chatting about "How to Make Readers Come Back for More?"

So, as a reader, what's make you come back?

I wish I was going to NYC!! Thing that makes me come back to read more from an author are awesome characters :)

Have a safe and awesome trip. I wish I was going.

What keeps me coming back is a combination of interesting characters, well designed plots, and some unknown quality that gets under my skin, pushing me to buy the next book. Sorry, it's early yet and I can't explain it any better than that.

great characters...and a storyline that hooks me & a subject that the author expands on (instead of rehashing variations on a theme)

Sometimes it's hard to pinpoint what keeps me coming back. Let's see. Characters I'd like to hang out with. Characters become friends, and I care about what happens to them. A plot that sucks me in, gets me so involved that my pulse quickens. I also love those little bits of foreshadowing planted in the story that make me go hmmmm...I'm just dying to know how things will unfold. Of course, if the story taps into my emotions, I develop a connection to it and that makes it all the more compelling.
