What’s in My Writing Hopper

Posted on

Every now and then I want to write the darker side of human nature. I want to dig deep and cut away to bad men who want to be loved. That is why I wrote Blind Date. It was supposed to be a sweet love story, but then I opened a bottle of wine.

I’ve decided to go back to The Company and pull out the rest of the team. However, this time, I’m entering the darkness with a heart warming story of a man at a crossroads in his life and his next decision, will change everything. His code name is Stop.

“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.” ― Maya Angelou

Well, That’s Just Illogical

Posted on Updated on

thursdays.1In my latest bestselling novel, Thursdays in Savannah, I wrote a character that was somewhat unlikeable.  She is so realistic, that it started a multipage discussion on Amazon reviews.  Seriously, she is so disliked, I received some 3 stars because many reader felt it was unfair that she got everything she wanted in the end.

Why: Because she had two men.  Somehow, she managed to be engaged to both.

Each knew about the other.

She got engaged on Valentine’s Day and met the hunky handy man on Valentine’s night.

Her logic: I am marrying for security, but before I do, I am going to sow some wild oats.

The readers hated her.

I pulled two of the reviews to share.

“There is something about this novel that just didn’t sit well with me. I wouldn’t say it’s the cheating directly because I’ve read other books with adultery as it’s plot point. But this story just…annoyed me. I think it has to do with the fact that Savannah just didn’t care about what she was doing. There was no remorse or guilt or feelings on her part where her fiancée was concerned. She had an entitled attitude about her that irritated me.

“Oh Savannah girl, what are you doing? I loved the way the book began with Savannah speaking to us the “voyeurs” about her….ah, indiscretions. I am a one man at a time kind of girls so I was surprised that I liked this book.”
What is illogical to me is this.  Jesse, the handyman, knew she belonged to someone else, yet, went balls to the walls to make sure she ended up as his.  He was even relegated to one night a week and he pulled out all the stops.
Yet, readers felt she did not deserve him.
Every Thursday he came over, dinner was ready and so was her loving.  She cooked him breakfast and packed him a lunch.  He even tricked her into meeting his family, and she put her skills to work in his favor at a conference to make him shine.
In the end, he came out on top. He wanted her at his side.
I am just confused.  Why is it okay for the man to go after what he wants, but the not the lady?  When the lady goes for broke, she has to be a gold digger.
]Well, to me, it’s just illogical, but I would love to hear your thoughts.
