Reader Expectations Classic Workshop
How to understand what readers need from your story besides great writing.
Taught by one of the most prolific writers working in modern fiction, Dean Wesley Smith (with the help of Kristine Kathryn Rusch). Over the years they have written upwards of two hundred novels each, plus hundreds and hundreds of short stories and nonfiction books and articles.
And they have written and published novels in just about every genre. They know and understand at a deep level what a reader in any genre expects from a book.
This workshop will help you understand that the readers have expectations and needs and if you fill those need, you will sell even more books to those readers. This workshop could also be called "Reader Satisfaction."
With over twenty-three million copies of his books in print, USA Today bestselling writer Dean Wesley Smith now brings you original fiction every month for the past three years in his own magazine, Smith’s Monthly.
Dean wrote over twenty-five original Star Trek novels, the only two original Men in Black novels, plus Spider-Man, X-Men, Iron Man novels, and others. He wrote many gaming novels including Final Fantasy.
He wrote novels and stories under almost fifty pen names and did scripts for Hollywood as well as being an editor for various magazines. He lives in Las Vegas with his wife, writer Kristine Kathryn Rusch. You can follow his writing life at www.deanwesleysmith.com
