Two things of note: I'm not much of a rule follower (unless it's practical) and I lean toward formal in things I like, e.g. pictures in frames should generally be the same size and color and symmetrically ordered on the wall. A mirrored balance makes me happy.
My soon-to-be-released novel, The Archer's Hollow, is in chronological order of events. Remember, I like things that way. This puts my villain in the very first chapter. It works for me and I hope it works for you when you read it.
This is why I think it will. Feel free to agree or disagree in the comments!
- The first chapter is titled Nefarious Intent.
- My villian's name is Nafaeri and not by accident (definite connection there).
- Throughout the first chapter, I've tried to expose her for what she is. I definitely want the reader to know what the hero and heroine are up against.
So, do you think I can pull of this latest rebellion? Any tips for making a stronger case?
