I don't think I'm alone when I say...I want my readers to cry when they read some of my stuff. lol You want them to have the emotional connection with your characters that won't let them go. I always worry that I don't have enough of that in my stories, but I always try for the emotion.
I'm thinking about this today because I just read two stories that made me cry...and I LIKED it. lol
Willow Bend by Ally Blue and As You Are by Ethan Day. Both had strong characters that had me yelling at the authors...FIX IT! lol The stories were so good and pulled me completely into them. I wanted to live in Willow Bend and be friends with Julian in As You Are. Those are the kind of stories I love and want to write.
So, how about it...what books have made you happy to cry?
