We at Magic Dome Books are always on the lookout for great new stories to add to our catalog. If you think you’ve written one, we’d be happy to try and change the world together!
Of course, all of us have our own ideas of what constitutes a great story. Here’s our take on what it means for us. Please be aware that we place great importance on the following things:
- The plot. It is important, you’d have to agree. The scene arcs which form the actual storyline should be as steep and picturesque as any Himalayan slope. A good book doesn’t ramble. It has to hook the readers from the start, making them eager to find out how it’s all going to work out, then answer this question at the end.
- The characters aren’t stock stereotypes whose sole task is to rush the MC through the plot. They’re fully fledged individuals with their own agendas who live their own lives within the context of the story.
- Your writing style. While we don’t expect you to be a silver-tongued wordsmith in possession of God-given eloquence, your grasp of writing techniques will play a paramount role in your book’s success with readers.
At the same time, we do know that a brilliant manuscript can well ignore all of the above and still be a work of genius. The history of literature abounds with such examples. Magic can’t be explained by a set of basic superficial rules. So if you’re sure that your manuscript possesses that touch of magic, feel free to try and charm us!
