Point of View-Keeping the Reader Reading by Susan Carlisle

Point of View is one of the elements of writing that the reader may not notice until the writer steps out of it. It is so important it can make a difference in whether or not a reader will continue to read a book or choose to leave it before the book is finished. 

Being in deep POV means the writer holds the reader emotionally. POV is what makes the reader feel what the character feels, helps make the reader experience what the character does. I’m a believer in not head hoping. 

I think the reader gets a better, clearer, and more satisfying story experience by standing solidly in one character head at a time. Emotion is what keeps the reader engaged and having a deep POV is how you keep that emotion exciting. 



Susan May’s love affair with books began when she made a bad grade in math in the sixth grade. Not allowed to watch TV until she brought the grade up, Susan filled her time with books. She turned her love of reading into a love of writing. Writing as Susan Carlisle she has completed more than 30 books for HarperCollins’s Harlequin imprint medical line. Her heroes are strong, vibrant man and the woman that challenge them.                                                          
She also writes nonfiction. Her book Nick’s New Heart 30 Years and Counting…is about her son’s heart transplant experience. Her second nonfiction is a historical biography called A WWII Flight Surgeon’s Story released under the author name S. Carlisle May. 
She lives in Georgia with her husband of over 40 years. They have four children and eight grandchildren. Susan loves castles, traveling, cross-stitching and reads voraciously.
