Thanks so much, Zara! Your comments will be very helpful when I come back to that book. (My mom passed away a few weeks ago, and it’s made me rethink my priorities in all areas, including which book projects to focus on.) I will be getting back to that book, I hope later this year, but I also realized it needs to be finished and edited before I submit it for critique. Being a pantster, too much can change once the book is completed from where it started, though I’m pretty confident in the basics of the first chapter. Anyway, that was a long way of saying thank you and I look forward to incorporating your suggestions during edits! I appreciate your time and again, thanks from a fellow “picky” reader. 🙂 Reina PS–I didn’t find any of your comments picky, actually. I love getting feedback.
