Voice is an element that can make or break a book. Whether you’ve written a book or are working on your manuscript, learning how to create distinct voices for your characters is key.
Even if a book’s premise isn’t fresh or if the story hits on a few overdone scenarios, clichés, and tropes, voice will have readers flipping through the pages, wondering what will become of their beloved characters. On the flipside, if a book has a twisty plot and amazing world-building, but the character’s voice falls flat, readers are very likely to go in search of another story.
