#writetip. I find reading novels with multiple POVs entertaining and enjoyable. So what’s the trick to writing multiple POVs. As usual, this is only my opinion, so here’s what I think.
If you’re going to have multiple POVs in your novel, it’s important to let your reader know this early on in the story.
I could be jarring for a reader to get half way through a novel, and the POV is ripped from underneath their feet and a new character steps in.
Changing POVs in the first few chapters will warn the reader this is your style and hopefully they’ll enjoy your book more. They’ll expect different characters to have their say, to drive the novel, and to provide surprises. They won’t get so attached to one POV that they can’t bear the change and toss the novel aside.
