“The Things We Do For Love”
Well, it’s done.
516 pages in total, in the rawest of forms, a story from start to finish.
Now the hard part begins; the first edit. I’m sure there are a few continuity issues, and at least one name changes for one of the characters.
There are other issues that will need addressing, like Inspector Banner who seems to turn up out of thin air and needs a little more introduction.
Likewise, Henry’s brother Harry needs to have his timeline and actions given his disabilities looked at in terms of whether it’s possible he could do what he did. I know it’s fiction, but characters lose credibility when they seem to have powers they simply could not possess.
Above all, Michelle needs to be more thoroughly introduced, though my intention originally was to have her this girl who is too good to be true, all of a sudden have this bad streak, whether by design or by accident.
I also think her relationship with the Turk needs more explanation because it seems in places quite wishy washy for want of a better description.
There may yet get to be a prologue that gives each a chance to see who they are before they get to the hotel by the sea.
Perhaps I’m, simply miffed that Diana aka Millie did not get a chance to shine before she appears much later in the book.
But, it is what it is for now, and the next edit, in a few weeks might or might not address all of these issues.
