A Book’s Soulmate

What is it you ask? Let me tell you.

Some people believe in life Soulmates. Others don’t. Neither is right, nor wrong. It’s just an opinion. A belief.

What about Reader Soulmates? What if there is that one reader out there, that makes or breaks your novel. In order for you to be an out of this world success, that one reader has to get their hands on your book. They’re the one person that tells the right people, and then those right people tell more of the right people, and it snowballs – in a good way – from there.

Without this one reader, our book will be okay. People will read it, some will love it, but it never really catches fire like we dream about.

If this were true. How would we know who that reader is? Is it just fate, luck, both? Can we find them or do they need to find us?

I’m not saying I believe this, but such are the ideas that pop into my head from time to time.

And now they’re in yours!

Happy Wednesday. 🙂

Tell me: Do you believe your book has a Reader Soulmate?
