Write a good story that will make a talk of the town for readers.

Devise an extraordinary plot, maintain the story’s consistency, and its progress. The growth should move to the intended tension your audience is looking forward, it can be a distinctive play on the characters or the struggles they’re going through.

Produce a character that will gain the mass acknowledgment every time they see your book.

4. Mood & style

Set the mood of the story where readers can recognize your work with how it is written. Fancy words are unnecessary but a little wordplay wouldn’t hurt a little. Nevertheless, consider setting your boundaries to phrases or vocabulary they can easily connect or relate with.                                    

5. Theme

It’s best if your story has a theme. Every story implies lesson or moral that any of your readers can reflect on. You don’t have to do the common type of preaching to your target audience conferring to what’s right or what’s not, let them figure out and outgrew from what your story is portraying.

6. Similarity

One way of holding that intimate connection between you and your readers is the aspect of relatability. Considering the exclusivity of the plot, and characters, pay attention how writing such relatable events would build that gist of sympathy or intimate connection between you and your readers. You would want to imperatively acknowledge your readers’ feelings by empathizing with them through characters or events that they can relate with, to let them know they’re not alone, and that your book can be their companion. Always remember to TELL a story, not just sell.
