Overview

The brain is like Google. It ranks things by referrals. The most engaging books trigger a response in multiple parts of the brain and thereby get ranked more highly by it. And books that get highly ranked become ‘must buys’. 'The Chemistry of Reading' explores how the body reacts during the reading experience and how writers can harness that to create an unforgettable story that arouses multiple parts of the readers’ brain.

A craft book in four parts:
1.How the chemistry works (in digestible plain-english)
2.Why you should exploit that as a writer of commercial fiction
3.The toolkit you’ll need to do that
4.Some practical examples of the toolkit (and the theory) in action

Meet the Author

Nikki Logan lives amongst a string of wetlands in Western Australia with her long-suffering partner and a menagerie of furred, feathered and scaly mates. She studied film and theatre at university, and worked for years in advertising and film distribution before finally settling down in the wildlife industry. Her romance with nature goes way back, and she considers her life charmed, given that she works with wildlife by day and writes fiction by night–the perfect way to combine her two loves. Nikki believes that the passion and risk of falling in love are perfectly mirrored in the danger and beauty of wild places. Every romance she writes contains an element of nature, and if readers catch a waft of rich earth or the spray of wild ocean between the pages she knows her job is done. Nikki debuted for Harlequin Enterprises (writing for the Romance line) in February 2010.
