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.
