i have to write a comment so that i don't DIE like the woman in your story. sheesh capeesh. how depressing. but hopefully you'll win!!!!!
This is kind of romance novel-ish but I definitely prefer the character dying over the alternative that we usually find in a romance novel. Nice muscles indeed!
It's not supposed to be depressing but somehow can't help but be. I was trying to flesh out the insides of the people that I am scared to even meet eyes with. We don't know what's going on in their heads and don't want to but no matter what the exterior, there can be great beauty inside that we never understand. I just wanted to instill a little dose of empathy for her character before making her into a stereotype.
It's not your conventional love story that's for sure, and you're reaching out to an audience mature enough to empathize with June, as opposed to your "puppy love" sick teenager (or avid daytime soap viewer). It's also very well written and engaging...I like it. Best of luck to you Sarah!
So.... do the bad things happen to your characters (obviously!) or to you??
I liked the twist! Best of luck--keep us posted on how you enjoy the villa! ;-D
