So far I can summarize with mixed feelings. Not everyone has loved my book. That should come as no surprise, and in the author world it's entirely expected. And yet when that book releases, I think we all kind of hope and feel that this time, it will be different. Everyone will love it.
But not everyone feels that way.
Interestingly enough, I think ALTERCATION accomplishes what I intended for both books to do. It's a longer book, full of character development and thickening plots. It's written for a YA audience. And it reaches them. The one audience that is not enjoying ALTERCATION so much? Older men. Since they are not my target audience, this shouldn't bother me. But many of them enjoyed the fast pace, action-packed plot of PERILOUS. It's a disappointment to lose them. Overall, however, I think I gain a lot more with ALTERCATION. It's exactly what I want it to be, and I'm happy with it.
