Review no.10 for Vokhtah – Yes!

I have not been doing much promotion at all recently, especially for Vokhtah, so I was delighted to see that it had a new review.

There is always an element of fear in that moment before you start reading a new review, and I admit, I wondered if this would be the one where a reader would tell me how much they hated Vokhtah and its characters. Instead, I found a lovely 4 star review that talked about caring for the characters, despite their difference.

When you write about psychopaths and shades of sociopath, it’s hard to make them lovable. Β Or even likable. Yet if a reader can’t care about your characters then no amount of inventiveness is going to keep them reading.

That was always my biggest fear about Vokhtah – could I find enough humanity in the characters to bridge the gap between them and us?

Today I am one happy scribbler. πŸ™‚



P.S.!!!!! Just discovered a 3rd review for the EGG too. πŸ˜€ Thanks Candy! This is turning into one of the best Sunday mornings ever. πŸ˜€
