Over on the Romance Divas forum, someone posted a link to This Article
, titled What Editors Hate.
Generally, I can see where editors are coming from with the pet peeves they've mentioned. Many of them are commonly known. But one in particular sparked a conversation among the Divas.
Many agents hate prologues.
Many published books have prologues.
This discussion makes me wonder--what do readers feel about prologues?
I guess I'm indifferent. However, I'll admit, I often skip them and get right to the story. Only if I feel like I've missed something important will I go back and read the prologue. So even though I don't have anything against prologues in theory, I don't bother reading them very often.
What about you? Do you read prologues? Skim them? Hate them? Love them? Opinions anyone?
