I not only like to read, I love research. This reflects in my books. They have a touch of imagination but facts too. I have yet to write a book that doesn't. I learned with my first book the importance with pace and sticking close to the plot. But mostly, characters will carry a story or kill it. Each story has to relate to the one reading it in some way or they won't connect. I'm very proud that my characters will introduce themselves and drag you through the story while touching your emotions.
I also know that no story arrives on the page perfectly. I want help from those who find mistakes. But do not rewrite my story. I don't lay facts out in a neat package. I like bread crumbs you follow through a forest of facts. My characters discover things like people do. One step at a time. Including things about themselves.
I will trade reads, answer questions, and edit if you ask me. I've learned about pace, plot strength, POV types, transitions, and multiple characters such as those in Challenges. Commas are not my expertise. I'm not horrible, but I make mistakes. Thankfully, there are those who read for me that help. Then again, they are also incredible writers. We come from Write On Kindle, a writing site that closed its doors. All of us take the skill of writing very seriously. Take a look and most of us will return the read.
