National Novel Promotion Month took place in May. I missed it. Better late than never!
To come up with a reader avatar, you’re going to think about the person who picks up your book and is going to LOVE IT.
- What kind of professions are they likely to have? Again, doesn’t mean they are all that profession, but maybe many have jobs with a common element.
- What do they value most in a book they read?
- Are they there for fun or to walk away still repeating your imagery in their minds?
- Do they need a puzzle to solve or do they need an experience?
- What kind of money are they spending every month on books?
Based on this, I’d say the Reader Avatar for Fractions of Existence probably has a “typical” job, perhaps doing office work such as data entry, and enjoys history or mythology or both. They most value having a fun reading experience that tickles the brain a bit. These readers want to walk away with thoughts churning in their minds. Figuring out “what-are-they” is certainly a puzzle. This reader probably spends two hours of earned income a month on books.
