Welcome to this week’s blog hop. Today the topic is:

‘Prologues and Epilogues. Yes or no?’

I do sometimes use prologues and epilogues, and so my choice would be to say yes. The prologue might give a small slice of the plot/action to come, introduce the reader to the main character(s), or maybe it might have a little bit of backstory.
