Ms. Hathaway, if a comment is true, I dont take pitty on myself for recieving it. Considering the ones you just posted were my exact words on someone elses book that was quite different from mine, I know they have been placed on my story without legitimacy or thought. Had they been your own words, I would seriously consider them and try to improve what you suggested. Mind you, my comments on cinnamon zombies books were harsh to scold them in the same way you are trying to scold me, as they posted "jesus no, just delete this" on the book of a ten year old indonesian girl. I understand your irritation, but perhaps we can discuss this peacably through private message?

Take care,
Laura :)

- "Not enough description using all the senses. Poor sentence flow in many places. Some redundancies and too many words and phrases that don't seem original or attenton-grabbing."

- "You start most of your sentences with 'I.' It sounds repetitive and makes readers lose interest."

- "Too many useless adverbs that could be deleted."

- "You tell us too much about 'I'. Don't use 'I' unless you absolutely have to....There was nothing gripping about it."

- "I'm done. There's nothing keeping my attention."

Not so nice when someone's raining on YOUR book, is it?

WOW, I read this 12 months ago and was impressed then, again you cease to amaze me. I have't been on the site for awhile as I've been busy writing. Hope all is well.
