2nd Alpha reader report
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!
