Secondly, William, I do understand that was a self-depreciating comment, and for the record, I look forward to reading Losing the Peace even if my issues with Miranda are not dealt with at all. I will say that your comment was made relative to a comment about ‘maybe the authors have a plan’ and my point was that I’m not assuming there is a plan, and that in fact since there are actually authors posting on these boards perhaps they’re looking for this kind of feedback and want to understand why a reader feels they way they do, and what they might be able to do differently to change that reader’s perception. Perhaps this has all been dealt with in your novel and it will be a moot point. Perhaps it hasn’t and some future author will gain some small kernel of insight from here.
Well, I do appreciate your intention to read LTP
, and I hope, regardless of how or if these issues are addressed, you enjoy it.
