August 19th Speaker: Angela Quarles

Delving into Deep Point of View


Angela Quarles is a RWA RITA® award-winning and USA Today bestselling author of contemporary, time travel, and steampunk romance. Library Journal named her steampunk, Steam Me Up, Rawley, Best Self-Published Romance of 2015 and Must Love Chainmail won the 2016 RITA® Award in the paranormal category, the first indie to win in that category. Angela loves history, folklore, and family history and combines it with her active imagination to write stories of romance and adventure.


Angela will give an overview of the different points of view available to authors, and then delve into the style known as Deep POV. Are you getting feedback that your story isn’t grabbing readers? Have you had critique partners say they had a hard time connecting with your characters? Have you had one of them say they didn’t feel emotionally engaged? Then this style might help you– it gives a reader a more immersive reading experience and can take your ho-hum prose to a sparkling level. Get reviews that say they stayed up late to finish, or they couldn’t put it down! She will give tips and tricks, as well as examples.

About meganbates

Hello! My name’s Megan, and I’m a young writer and graphic designer. I graduated from Loyola University a year ago, and during my time as an undergraduate, I had the privilege to do a study abroad in Ireland. I fell in love with traveling—meeting new people, experiencing different cultures, and finding unique places to inspire my creativity. But like many people, student loans and other life expenses are keeping this post-grad tied at home. (For now, at least!) Luckily for me, my hometown of New Orleans offers a lot of awesome opportunities for staycations. But I also want more obscure adventures, things beyond iconic events and places like Jazz Fest, Mardi Gras, and the French Quarter. If you’re a local like me, you love them, but you’ve done them. So, what else is there? That’s my goal—to seek out fresh or little known places both in and outside New Orleans area.
