Topic: When do I Interest the Villain
Hi folks I am new to writing I have put up the first chapter of my book and would love some input from experienced writers. I have a plot in my head for the rest of the story, that will unfold as we go along. but I have one question. at what stage do I need to introduce to the reader the villain? I was originally going to be two thirds of the way through the book before the hero discovers him, but I think the readers will put the book down before then if I don't.
