This post would be the continuation of Q&A session with the Sexy Six team and in case you’ve missed the 6th one, here is the link to it.
It’s a pleasure to interview the six sexy authors from the Sexy Six team. A warm welcome to our blog and we hope that you’ve enjoyed the interview session with us.
We’ve asked them a few questions and the answers for each question from all six of them will be published as a series. Let’s check out question #6
What do you consider most important in a novel – literary value or story?
The story. Always the story.
STORY…hands down and I am an Pro editor too, so that will tell you how important this answer is.
I’d have to say the story. If you have a good story, then you HAVE literary value – verdad ?
Story is everything. Most people read for entertainment, and escape!
The story, without hesitation. I’m not here to flex my literary muscles, I want to entertain.
In my humble opinion, the story should be uppermost. The reader needs to be engaged with the characters in order to care about them. If my books do that, the literary value for that reader is reached and that’s all that is really important to me.
