Inner Dialogue and Book Promotion


Hmm, she thought. How am I going to promote my book?

In addition to my constant perplexity about promoting my book, I came upon a writing issue that is not resolved! In writing my short story Horarium for Wattpad, I wanted to write someone’s inner dialogue and realized I wasn’t sure how to do that. Neither is the writing world, it seems. You can choose to put quotes in or you can write in italics. But nobody has convinced me that either way is the right way.

Here is a link about it: http://theeditorsblog.net/2012/02/28/inner-dialogue-writing-character-thoughts/

I chose for myself. What do you think?

Also, I found a great link about book promotion from an author who feels pretty much the same way I do about book promotion. http://dreamnotion.zhollis.com/2011/10/25/how-to-find-readers-for-your-novel-actual-steps-honest-answer She has a timeline of her book there that I really appreciate seeing. She also found the best promotion was the free material she offered!

  1. I use italics. I just like the different look from spoken dialogue in quotation marks. Some writers swear by no mark or italics, but I think that’s harder for readers to pick up.

  2. Thank you, Kate! I’ll take these links – both sound helpful.
