First impressions are as important in fiction as they are in real life.
A reader’s first impression of your characters will shape their impression of the book overall. If they are instantly drawn to your characters, you can all but guarantee that they will stick with them from start to finish.
Take a look at various character archetypes and how they can be introduced effectively to compel your readers to read on.
