I wrote three books before I even heard of M. Kennedy and now of course I wish I had written them post Kennedy. Oh, they would have come out so much better. I'm writing one currently and this time she's on every page with me. Thank you Marcy Kennedy.
I would highly recommend "Deep POV" to all writers and even go a step further. I'd recommend it to all readers who are curious about how and why they enjoy the books they read. I know I am enjoying reading no end since I encountered M. Kennedy. She's a credit to the profession.
Writing in deep point of view, whether in first or third person, past or present tense, gives your reader the opportunity to experience the character’s world as s/he experiences it. This builds a strong emotional bond between your reader and your character’s story.
I liked the examples Kennedy gave as well as her check list of things to look for when you’re editing your book. This is a great guide for anyone interested in writing strong POVs.
