Re: I'm 48,000 Words In...

You know, I am starting to appreciate people, especially people who I have limited contact with, more and more.

I'm getting feedback as people get into the book or they finally finish it. Being honest with myself as always, as well as the community, a bulk of the feedback is good, some is neutral, and there are some criticism points. For one, people say they can see the engineer in me coming through the book, and although it's not a horrible thing, it doesn't offer the smootest read as some seasoned writers.

On another note, people seem to enjoy the story line. I have been told that the characters are well developed, but somethings are a little different than the traditional format. I was told this isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just not the norm.

I have been asked when is the sequel coming by a few, and one written review called the book a diamond in the rough.

For a first time novelist, I guess that isn't too bad.

One other thing, I did notice that reviews and outlooks toward characters' personality and the dialogue varied between people's sex/race/hobbies/lifestyle choices. This shows how some people think alike while others may have a different line of thinking even when these individuals don't know each other from a can of paint.
