No matter what type of fiction you write, what draws readers in is the characters.

If the reader doesn't care about the characters, the most gripping plot won't carry the day.

So how do you get readers to care?

Character diagrams, checklists, and charts can only take you so far.

You need to know your characters-and love (or hate) them-just as you do real people, which means learning about your characters from the inside out.

In Creating Compelling Characters you'll explore your characters from the inside so you can:

  • understand their hopes, fears, and motivations
  • learn what drives them to do what they do
  • create living, breathing characters rather than cardboard cutouts

Using questions and prompts designed to help you peer into your characters' hearts and minds and examples from popular books and classics such as Gone Girl, The Dead Zone, and Pride and Prejudice, bestselling novelist Lisa M. Lilly (writing as L. M. Lilly) helps you create real, engaging characters that will keep readers turning pages.
