I finished Terminal Monday last night, and I am awed by your story. You made me care about your main character so very much, and that made the ending all the more poignant and powerful. I also like the way you redirected me from any conclusions that cropped up along the way, but when the final picture was presented, I realized that it was all there in plain view. It took me a long time to go to sleep last night because I kept turning the events over in my mind.
You have a special gift for dialogue, Lee, and the entire story just flowed. Even though Richard and I don’t have the same musical tastes, you captured well the good feelings of a group creating music together and the joy of playing and singing your heart out, which touched upon my good memories. I also liked Richard’s stories and the clever ways you incorporated them into the main novel. Yes, the sex was steamy and sometimes over the top, but it was part of the whole and necessary for the story you were telling. It’s a compelling one that will stay with me for a long time.
That’s the nicest thing anyone’s said to me about my writing in a while.
That’s all I’ve got for the moment. Thanks for reading, and if you’re reading this, thank you again, Lady Kestrel.
