2nd Alpha reader report

Again, ignoring sage advice from well-seasoned writers ...

My dear, sweet M-I-L returned the edit of the technological thriller manuscript my husband and I co-wrote.

Her number one complaint? Parts were childish.

Hello? Mom? Your child wrote it...Isn't childish good in this case?

The secret to happiness is:

Take EVERYTHING as a compliment!

I've been told that if your mother loves your manuscript, agents and publishers may well hate it; therefore, if your mother hates the manuscript, agents and publishers will likely love it!

P.S. stands for "Positive Spin" - try it!

P.P.S. I am a proponent of hyperbole and propositional fallacies

P.P.P.S. Thanks Susan--your input really is valued!
