11.29: Elemental Thriller as a Subgenre
Thrillers are, by their very nature, page-turners. In this episode we look at the thriller element as part of a story whose principal driver is one of the other elemental genres. We consider some examples of blended-with-thrill stories, and then drill down a bit and look at how we can incorporate this in our own work.
Credits: This episode was recorded by Daniel Thompson, and mastered by Alex Jackson.
Homework: Practice your cliffhangers! Experiment with the placement of chapter breaks, new questions, and big reveals, and work on each of these methods as a way to satisfactorily encourage that page turn.
Thing of the week: Planetfall by Emma Newman, narrated by Emma Newman.
