 Identifying Your Audience

Leslie Wells

If the person reading your book is sitting in a restaurant, does he or she relate most to the perky waitress, the suave maître d’, the bartender sporting a full sleeve tattoo, the owner who’s just opened a sister place in Vegas, or the patron on her cell in the corner table? Identifying your ideal reader can be extremely helpful in any kind of writing. With fiction in particular, it’s good to be able to pinpoint the type of reader you’re writing for.
