Mike has given amazing feedback over the years over the years. Some suggestions have included little things, like different ideas on how my characters can curse. Others have been more significant, affecting character development and plot threads. A perfect example was his advice on fleshing out the book with additional plot threads. “A lot of the books I read have interweaving storylines,” he said. “I like to know what happens to other characters who aren’t the main hero.” Mike will tell you that he’s an asshole (and I agree, ha ha) but this advice was given gently, and I ran with it. One would think it obvious, but often, even the obvious needs to be pointed out.
