Almost always, my books get good ratings.  However, every now and then I’ll get some criticism.  When I get criticized it’s, we want more out of the characters and more of their feelings.  So I decided to write a blog to tell more about me and my feels.  Who could understand my...

I am just starting to write again and am wanting some feedback.
