Get a Handle on POV

First person, singular? Third person, multiple? Who is telling your story? A one-hour audio presentation.

As a novelist, who is telling your story is one of the most important decisions you'll make at the outset of each novel. POV sets the tone for the story and draws the reader into the lives of your characters. But how do you decide which point of view is best for the book you're writing?

Author and Editor, Dave Lambert, brings his expertise to the topic of POV, offering POV definitions, examples, and suggestions.

The lecture was originally given at an American Christian Writers conference. If you want more information on their conferences and services visit www.acwriters.com.
