Today, a woman gave DooRFrame Books a small donation for a signed copy of AFTER JEWEL; and I am so appreciative. As usual, my fav part was signing the copy to her.
I published AFTER JEWEL on Christmas Day, 2013 — almost immediately made some corrections and re-published it a few days later — I’ve had very positive feedback from the few who’ve read the novel, but several comments about my main character have bothered me. I won’t tell — don’t worry. Spoilers drive me crazy.
However, I will say that I read through AFTER JEWEL Thursday night and Friday morning ( it’s a short book ) and I did get bogged down in one spot that a reader mentioned, but the feelings toward the main character elude me.
I would say more, but then my comments would indeed spoil the book for anyone who might pick it up for a quick, satisfying read.
I discovered the novel works for me, still.
