I have debated this in my mind for a few days now and it is really not that easy to answer. For every book that I will eventually put in my 'Best' shelf here in my Goodreads Library (this will take years by the way) I could pick a great point for an answer.

But if I can only pick one I would be sitting having dinner one evening in 1933 at the Tokatlian Hotel in Istanbul. I would look over and a small neat looking gentlemen would beckon me over to join him at his table where he sits alone. I join him and we quickly realise we are catching the train back to London at the same time. We order another drink and quickly become friends as he 'modestly' tells me all about himself.(less)

But an excellent piece of advice about this can be found at the Sarah Phelps Writers Room on the BBC website. The link to the video is at:

I have tweeted about this whole video because I think every author should listen to it and take the advice.(less)
