Would You Like to Make Money Writing Fiction?
In order to make a success of your fiction writing business, you need to know what type of stories will resonate with your target audience so that you are providing them with the right type of plots that they expect to read and enjoy.
One way to do this is to read reviews left by customers on books that are in your genre. You can get a lot of helpful information from taking the time to study the responses and the feedback left.
If you prefer, you can take a short cut by reading a report where that research has already been done for you. This is where Britt Malka’s offering comes in handy.
Romance Deal Breakers by Britt Malka
Britt Malka is an online marketer and a fiction writer. She has published books in several genres including romance and cosy mystery. Her latest report Romance Deal Breakers – What Readers Won’t Read provides the research that could help you improve the content of your romance fiction writing.
The report gets straight to the point without any fluff. It consists of 22 pages divided up into an introduction, 5 chapters which have several sub-headings in each and the conclusion.
Britt lists all the things that stop a romance reader from finishing a book. Some are obvious and straightforward while others were contradictory and surprising to me.
She looks at romance and reader expectation within different genres ranging from Fantasy, Science Fiction, Young Adult and Christian Romance.
3 Reasons I Liked Romance Deal Breakers
There were several things that I was able to glean from this report. Here are the main three things that I think could help me improve my own romance fiction writing.
- One chapter looks at the reasons why readers skim parts of a book. This is the shortest chapter in the report but it was relevant to me because I was guilty of doing one of the things mentioned. I was going to repeat this process in a future story but now I will rethink how I will convey the same meaning and message in a different way so that I do not have to fear the wrath of the unhappy or bored reader.
- As I read about the dislikes that some readers had about a particular genre, Britt presented me with a great idea for future a romance story plot that I hadn’t thought of before.
- At the moment I am concentrating on writing clean romances so what Britt had to say about the balance between my type of stories and the stories in the Christian romance category gave me food for thought. This is a very lucrative category so I might consider incorporating her suggestion but I would have to read more books in order to do this right.

These tips will definitely help me write with the reader in mind.
