A story like this needs to come from deep within the characters. This was the premise on which I started writing “It Can’t Be You”. To give you, the reader, a sense of their thoughts and feelings, I chose to use the first person narrative for the most part of the book.
Each of the principal characters tells his /her story in the first person. This, I believe, draws you the reader closer to their thoughts and, in a sense, their motivations for doing what they did!
This approach also helped me cover large time frames in relatively shorter space. This was an important consideration as the events that affect the characters don’t take place in a day or so. They span many years of their lives.
It’s been fun using this style and I hope it will appeal to you, my readers.
