I read every review I receive, and I’m seeing a pattern: those who had trouble getting through the first half of D’s Oracle, loved D’s Assassin, and those who loved the first half of D’s Oracle, despised D’s Assassin!
I think D’s Oracle appealed to people who primarily enjoy character development while D’s Assassin appealed to people who love primarily love a creative plot. Maybe?? D’s Oracle: more prose. D’s Assassin: quicker pace. D’s Oracle: more characters and exposure to the Guardian’s world. D’s Assassin: more focused on the heroes. In general, I think D’s Assassin was better written as far as flow and timeline but D’s Oracle did better at developing some of the main characters. I shall endeavor to balance out my next one so it both flows well and has good character development!!
It’s awesome I have both types of readers interested in my books, but I wonder if that means I’ve doubled the appeal of my writing to two distinct audiences or I’ve lost everyone due to the differences between the two books?!
Deep thoughts for a Monday.
