How do you explain a science fiction or fantasy plot to someone who has never read this genre?
I have relatives who have never read fantasy reading my novel. They don’t understand magic and several have mispronounced the word “Mage”.
One person mentioned that they had no idea that magic was so prevalent during that time period. (Did I mention my book is NOT set on earth?)
Not sure how to explain these facts to relative and new book readers, thoughts?
