I received a very pleasant message from my publisher today regarding my third volume’s manuscript. They said the following: “You have a terrific writing style. You have obviously done a significant amount planning and preparation in crafting your work. Your prose is nicely written with details that capture the reader. Right from the start your plot was very engaging. You do a nice job of slowly making your way through the story with details and a certain voice that allows your reader to really interact with the characters (who are all round and very nicely developed). Characterization is one of the most important elements of a successful fiction story. I always love it when I leave a story feeling like I know the characters. This is true for your novel. You have crafted another quality piece of writing.” I am pleased that they enjoyed my next volume and look forward to the final product of the publishing process.
