Hello and thank you so much for stopping by. I’m in a bit of a pickle right now with my current work-in-progress. You see, I’m rewriting it. I’ve learned so much since I first wrote the story, and I’ve had a few authors go over it and give suggestions on what needs to be changed or made stronger. That has helped immensely.
The only problem is, I have to decide on the POV (point of view) for the story.
I have four characters that could all be my main character. Here’s a bit about them:
Lindsay – The Princess of Alectrona. She fled to Earth to escape the Erebus (another species of alien), and fulfill the prophecy that her child would save her people. She married a man on Earth, gave birth to his child (who bears the mark indicated in the prophecy) and tries to blend in on the planet.
Bryce – Alien Hunter come to Earth to track and kill the Erebus who are also on this planet. He is also searching for the Princess of Alectrona who fled their home planet years ago. Little does he know that the princess is also his soul mate.
Katrina – She is Lindsay’s daughter, unaware of who her mother really is. She is sick and tired of her over-protective mother and just wants to hang out with her friends. But when she finds out what she is, and that everyone is after her, she just wants to be normal.
Isabel – She is the main antogonist. Her husband is an alien like the others, and she didn’t find out until he confessed when she miscarried their child. Now, she bides her time, pretending to be okay with his alien heritage while she learns more about the species and where they are on Earth. She plans to eliminate them all, and when she is approached by the Erebus for help, she puts her plans into action.
The genre is Urban Sci-Fi, but there is the romantic aspect between Lindsay and Bryce that is also very important to the story. There will be two more in the series after this, where Katrina is a little older, and having her own romance. Lindsay and Bryce play minor roles in the second and third books.
So, my question to you is, would you prefer a story like this in multiple point-of-views? One character only? Maybe two? And which characters would you prefer as the POV character?
Thank you for your help!
