If you’re ready for binding books it means you have deep, complex characters in your book. Characters that aren’t stereotypes. Characters that aren’t weak pushovers, who succumb to your protagonists’ will, but who challenge him to overcome obstacles and understand himself and his relation to society. This is easier said than done. You can go through your book and look at each character to determine whether or not they help or harm your protagonist. If they do neither, think about re-evaluating their place in the story.
You want to give each of your characters a specific life. You don’t want characters without passion, who simply occupy space in a story — they will come off as mechanisms to move the plot along. Likable characters should be confident but not arrogant, passionate and sure of themselves, but able to come together and accede to a role that is above them. Those whose egos get in the way make for good antagonists, and can help teach the protagonist a lesson with regard to how to submit to a higher will. But most people are middling, and so most characters are too. Making your characters new and incorporating elements of people you like and dislike into them will make your characters readier for book binding services.
