What do readers expect from a fairytale retelling? And what is actually the hardest part of writing them?
This week, I was flooded with fan questions about retellings, so I put the call out on social media for more questions and picked the most common questions I was asked to create a video series with answers for those aspiring authors and established authors looking to jump into the world of retellings.
In this episode, I talk about reader expectations and how that ties into the surprising (or not-so-surprising) hardest part about writing them successfully.
This Video 1 of the Retellings Q&A Video Series with K.M. Robinson, author of The Golden Trilogy. Video 2 will be up tomorrow with advice for what not to do in a retelling + if only using one plot point counts as a retelling.
