The Review Is In

Here's the review I've been waiting for today. Head on over to John Waverly's blog and read what he has to say about my heart throb MC, Octavion. It's not pretty.  Then come back and tell me what you think. Do you agree with him? It's okay if you do. I'd like to know what you really think about how some male characters are portrayed in YA novels. What will our kids get out of it?  Here's the link:


  1. He brings up some valid points. I like how respective and well thought out the whole review was and I love your response.

    True professionals. :)

  2. I haven't read BOUND yet so I can't agree or disagree but I did read the review. I felt he was very kind to start with, then allowed his own personal emotions and experiences to color his review of the book. Of course such things always effect how we feel about books. The real question is, does she stand up to him, hold her own, put him in his place. It sounds as though she does. Life is rough, reality is worse than fiction, and it's all about how we handle it. The same goes for our characters.

    My antagonist does some horrible things and it makes my own book a bit dark, but there are people who've said they love the antagonist, which certainly wasn't my intent as he is the bad guy. All we can do is write the story that is in our hearts and keep writing for ourselves and those who love our books.
