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