Book Pitch 3

Paradise Found

“Well, Milton, I think you’ve got an interesting premise. But your villain is flat—absolute evil is fine and good—well, you know what I mean—but it’s so dry. At least make the guy intriguing, or charming.”

“Sir, I simply haven’t the inspiration. Where would I look for a character both evil and intelligent? How can I write a devil appealing enough to compete with deity?”

“Ah. Clearly you have never visited my blog.”

Oh, Tal, just because some of us can't figure out how to work moles into every exercise. My only other common thread is EE worship.

Nice work!
Had me chewing on the idea of adding depth to "evil" characters all day. The back and forth of EE might be a good model, indeed. Interesting, very intersting.

I liked this, Kiersten. You're still on form I see.
