How to make your book un-put-down-able


I came back from my holidays a couple of days ago, all smiley and refreshed.

Despite my fears, the smile on my face didn’t fade when I opened my mailbox as there were only about 250 messages waiting for me. I patted myself on the back as a first reaction; how good was I to tick off all Twitter email notifications recently!

I was so relieved with this low number of incoming messages that I didn’t even mind the negative response from the immature 10-year-old inside my head who started to snicker; something about me not being important after all, which of course I dismissed, being the sensible adult.

Having addressed my incoming mail quickly enough, today I have the opportunity to finally blog. It crossed my mind to share some awkward experiences I had during my holiday (first time ever!) but then thought I’d probably bore you. Instead, I’ll just show you a few pics from my stay in Corfu and Lefkada but before that, I got a great post to talk to you about!

Its writer is award-winning author K.M. Weiland and I found it on the blog of a similarly successful writer and blogger, Jonathan Gunson. By the way, if you’re on the lookout for useful information on the craft of writing and unique marketing tips & insights, then make sure to subscribe to the newsletters of these amazing fellow indies. You’ll even be sent excellent free ebooks to delve into (one by each site).

Anyway, the specific post discusses an issue that had never occured to me. What is it that gets readers hooked on a book? What is the magic substance that seemingly glues their hands to its open pages?

Well, head over to Jonathan’s blog and see if K.M. Weiland’s post provides any food for thought that you could feast upon. I know I did! In order to explain her theory with specific examples, Katie refers to a greatly-loved masterpiece of classic literature: Charlotte Brontë’s, Jane Eyre.

Here is what could make your book un-put-down-able too!

  1. Heart-warming pictures especially for me. As for your Lefkas adventures, here’s an idea! Make a short story out of them. I think that’ll be unputdownable!
