Through blogging and the PR company, Partners In Crime Tours, I met someone who is an outstanding blogger and reviewer. After working with him on several projects, I had a feeling that he might also be a writer.
As I said, he sent me only the first half, as the 2nd half was with his editor. I started reading with great skepticism because now it was going to be the moment of truth. The novella starts off with a prologue and within the first couple of pages, the book grabbed me. The suspense and action was fast paced. The writing style flowed and it was easy to create my own imagery from the detailed prose. There were only two (2) items that I felt that could be improved upon, which with time, mentoring and professional advice, would help make this blogger’s work into an author’s success. Those 2 items were, and only during a couple of places in the story, a bit of simplistic dialogue and the other being of tweaking to make the story in certain places tighter and mature. Oh and one other big problem was the fact that now, I don’t know what happened next, I don’t know how the story ends, and who the killer was. But overall, from what I read, and knowing that this will be his debut novella, I was quite impressed. I definitely see a tour in his future.
