Abby Goldsmith (abby_goldsmith) | 1 comments I blogged about a major roadblock I'm running into with traditional publishing industry readers. They see a trope, assume that's all it is, and stop reading before the trope gets subverted.

Most beta readers don't seem aware of the tropes, or don't mind them, and keep reading. But I'm worried that it will turn off a percentage of jaded readers, unless I can reassure them, within the first few chapters, that "this trope will be turned on its head." Any advice?
