Interesting – one reader of Chapter 10 of As Long As She Lives, felt that Sean’s over-protective reaction to Kitty and Riley being friends was sweet, and I was concerned I hadn’t made it clear that he was being more than a little patronizing. Then another reader reacted violently, saying she hated “big brothers” like that, that they were borderline incestuous and that he was “a douchebag” (she also said it was cliche, but I prefer to call it a trope – it’s deliberately so, afterall!) So, I reckon that’s a good couple of samples and it’s okay, at least for this draft!
Writer, reader, traveler, gadget geek, dilettante photographer and ancient history buff. I used to turn other writers' stories into audio books, now I write my own. My debut novel, As Long As She Lives, is out now!
