Next to the last day. For me its been a fast and fun experience. I have especially appreciated the forthright reviews of Palo Duro. Someone once said “there is no pride in authorship.” That is not true… I certainly take to heart all comments about substance, style, and grammar. It is the only way to move forward as a writer.
Today’s review comes from Kristine Hall. The following is an excerpt from her website, Hall Ways Blog.
HALL WAYS REVIEW: ✪✪✪✪
“In Palo Duro, readers are given thirteen sub-books, each focusing on a historical event or person(s), as related to the Southwest of the 1800s. The events and people tend to weave in and out of the bigger novel because they are all connected in some form or fashion. While initially, some of the stories seem to be irrelevant (but highly entertaining and immensely interesting), author Max Knight makes sure readers know that nothing is randomly placed in Palo Duro.”
As a former school teacher, Kristine Hall does point out the misuse of semi-colons and quotation marks in the book, commenting…
“I don’t imagine there are many who are distracted by a misused semi-colon or quotation marks, but anyone who reads my reviews knows it’s my curse/blessing.”
Such attention to detail is not only warranted, but much appreciated!
