…in order to remind you what happened in the previous book(s).
45% Cleverly inserted reminders
41% Synopsis at the beginning
29% Glossary at the back
22% Don’t need reminders – I reread the previous books
3% Don’t need reminders – I remember everything
It doesn’t add up to 100% because I allowed people to vote more than once.
I didn’t expect so many to prefer a synopsis. (Hate them myself. Hate reading them, hate writing them.)
I suspect the operative word with the winner is “cleverly”. There is nothing worse than unsubtle info dumps in the first chapter or two.
And oh, wouldn’t I love to be one of those folk who remember everything? I don’t even remember what I wrote in the previous book!
Thanks for entering the poll!!
