While deciding whether or not to start with a prologue, I recalled advice I had received from a workshop facilitator: “Use only if the prologue adds an interesting and integral layer to the narrative.”
Interesting and integral…Definitely a challenge and one I decided to tackle in my new release, Too Many Women in the Room. Having written the rest of the novel in the first-person POV, I wanted the reader to be privy to the thoughts and feelings of the victim in his final hour.
Thanks for hosting me, Bonnie 🙂
Thanks for contributing a gues post, Joanne. I enjoyed reading it and am sure many others will, too.
Great start to your novel! Wish you much luck with it.
Thanks Ilona! Hope you’re enjoying the first day of summer 2017. 🙂
