RE: Authors - Does your partner read your work?

My wife shows scant interest in my writing. When she has read it, she's tended not to like it, though she's been a big help on technical points every so often. It's a shame that she really doesn't enjoy crime fiction.

I find it better not even to suggest that she look at something - the puffing cheeks just don't offer encouragement.

Smile
Thanks,

nigel

That's a real pity and quite sad. I hope you have been able to show her that other people appreciate your books.
