What’s Hot: Character Guides

WHAT'S HOT- (1)

Not only am I an author, I’m also a bookseller. I often think about things I can share with my followers while I’m working.

One of the things I notice is hot selling items.

Character Guides are huge in the children’s department. Kids are crazy about finding out all the details of their favorite characters. They also provide pictures and back story.

Usually a character guide consists of several pages devoted to the main characters from the series. A picture or pictures are provided, as well as details such as date-of-birth, birthplace, family tree, etc. Other characters may have one page with fewer details depending on their importance and presence in the series.

So, if you’re publishing a series of books, you should really consider creating a character guide to go along with it. Warriors The Ultimate Guide is a great example.

I've always been a story teller. This made for some interesting missing homework and late for curfew tales. But I've never had a head for the pedantic rules of grammar and spelling. This made for some interesting comma placement and spelling choices. About ten years ago I decided to figure out how to share my stories, in spite of my shortcomings. I'm lucky to have great colleagues who can help me with the fine details. My favorite class in school was American History. The Colonial Cat's series gives me a chance to write about the great history of the United States and cats!
