There is a long and thoughtful post about Mortal Ghost at a blog I read regularly, Breakfast with Pandora. I’m very pleased to receive such frank and generous criticism, and DF offers a considered assessment of the novel’s plot in particular. I would like to encourage all readers to go over there and add to the conversation, or begin a discussion here or at the Mortal Ghost blog itself. I most assuredly do not mind negative remarks and am not offended by them; I give them my full attention.
However, I’d like to make it clear that I won’t be adding to the discussion myself. The novel – for better or for worse – now is, and I don’t feel it’s an author’s job to explain, interpret, or defend their work, unless it’s a more or less factual question. It’s now in readers’ hands.
The PDF file of the novel will be available later today to download, for those of you who want to read it in that format.

Seven is a magic number – how wonderful.
Five children is impressive for one with such an androgyhnous name. I currently have seven children and look fondly back at my five kid starter pack days.
Hi Frank, translate ‘brave’ into ‘mad’, maybe? Thanks for reading, and please feel free to add your comments. I’ve already bought my full-body armour.
BTW, I’m a she – and with 5 children (I did say mad, didn’t I?)
Geez you are brave and mature, Mr. Lowe. Downloading pdf now and looking forward to reading it.
Hi LM, thanks. The PDF file is now available. I hope you enjoy reading it.
well I’m feeling all goosy right now. I would kill to have someone write what such a critique. I have only read the first couple of chapters because I have poor eyesight that is exacerbated by trying to ‘read’ as opposed to looking at a computer monitor, however, I know you have a unique style. I will read the pdf version to see what he is criticising in the plot. But I do agree that you should get it out there in print.
It’s all good.
