I debated whether or not to add villain chapters to the Prenup from Hell for a long time. Some people don’t like them, but then some people don’t like flashbacks either and I LOVE those. (I blame Highlander for that addiction.) I also happen to love writing bad guys. It’s fun to take a walk on the dark side.
I’m at a good point in Prenup where I could easily (yeah right) insert a chapter with the villain. I know the motivation. I know they hold the key to solving the entire problem that my characters are going through–not that I’m going to give that away in chapter nine–but it feels right to bring them into play.
It’s not as if I’m writing first person where you don’t get to see the villain from any perspective than the ‘hero’. Hopefully my readers find the villain to be an interesting character.
