How to Cultivate a Strong Connection with Your Reader

How to cultivate a strong connection with your reader


Have you ever picked up a book at 10pm and been so enthralled, the next thing you know, it’s 3am, and you’re approaching the last few pages? 

If you have experienced this, then you know the exhilarating feeling of being totally in the author’s thrall and how rare it is to connect so deeply with a book that you simply cannot put it down. Never mind how you feel the next day. Any author who kept you up all night reading deserves to have you make that early morning walk of shame to the coffee maker.
