The Dominion Trilogy--Day 3

Is everything about the books *perfect*? No. I saw quite a few typos that threw me out of the story--along with way too many words italicized. Which is interesting because my critiquers complain about that in my stuff. So I guess I'm starting to learn to see it! Other little things like repetitive word issues threw me for a few times. I'll admit, though, that the first few chapters (of each book) were the worst. That may not be an absolute fact, but just that I stopped noticing once the stories swallowed me whole. Because they did.

Robin Parrish is the author of Relentless and Fearless (and the upcoming series finale: Merciless). But who is he? The book jacket has this to say:

For years Robin Parrish has covered the world of Christian culture--music, books, film, comics, and more--as a journalist. Currently he serves as the founder and editor-in-chief of Infuze Magazine, a cutting edge online magazine positioned at the intersection of art, culture, and faith. He and his wife live in North Carolina.


Robin blogs here. I'd hoped to have a Q&A with him but I guess I hopped on the bandwagon too late. And as it is, I have to be out of town on Wednesday so I'm popping this up last minute (for me.)

Hi Val,
Funny I got so caught up in the story that I didn't even notice the typos. What stood out to me. Was. This.

It's so hard for writers to read and review without getting absorbed in the glitches. Passive voice. Type-o's. Repetition. But a great story makes those things go away for even the most resilient writer. It sounds like Robin pulled you in too.

God Bless,
Dan
