Everything Else / Wanted: People who can read good and do other things good too.

I wrote a book...

Now I need feedback. Honest, brutal, hurt-my-feelings feedback. Because it's more important for me to make a good product than to protect my ego. Also, the better it is, the more likely I can get it published, make money, write more books, buy more guns, and shoot them.

If you're a western gun aficionado, or a horse owner, I could certainly use your help as I'm weak in those areas. I've researched what I could, but from what I gather, horse people get as ticked off as we gun folks do when you get an obvious detail wrong. And any moment that makes a reader stop and go, "Wait... what?" is the absolute worst mistake a writer can make. And this is based in Wyoming, which I haven't been to in many years. (The general area is based of CASPER. And if you're sharp eyed enough, you'll start recognizing the historical basis for many of the characters.)

What's it on?

Well... if you like Magnificent Seven, Jurassic World, and Planet of the Apes - you ought to like this.



For a sampling of the first, heck I dunno, dozen or so chapters - here's a link:

If you are interested, let me know and I'll send you a word document. I would offer to send paper copies, but it's not cheap to send a book through the mail. And Ink Cartridges die quick printing out a few hundred pages over and over.

So far, feedback has been great. I seem to have created something worthy of being read.

But I'd love to have feedback from my actual target audience. (Which is you people.  8))

Very true. It can be a case by case decision. Here are two scriptures I thought of with that.

Proverbs 26:4-5 Do not answer a fool according to his folly lest you also be like him. Answer a fool according to his folly lest he be wise in his own eyes.
Matthew 7:6 Do not give what is holy to the dogs; Nor cast your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn and tear you in pieces.

It seems we have no shortage of fools, dogs, and swine in our society

I like the idea of that quote. But I have no duty to argue with someone who pukes out inaccuracies or lies. If I did have such a duty, this person would have control over me by making claims that I am required to refute. I do not accept this external obligation.

Thanks for the quote, though. It is good to discuss these things.

I had forgotten the space trilogy. I didn't get them as a kid, either. I need to re-read those.
I suggest that you read them with a mental filter of good versus evil.

I am seeing the Narnia books in a whole new light reading them with my kids. I had forgotten the space trilogy. I didn't get them as a kid, either. I need to re-read those.
