Stripah Love is a Great Ride

You'll Want to Take it Everywhere

Paul Scheckel is a home energy expert whose new book HOUSE DIET will be published later this month by New Society Publishing.

I just finished, and thoroughly enjoyed STRIPAH. Probably the first piece of fiction I've read in 2 years. (Also, I just received copies of my book this week, so you'll be getting a copy soon.)

I posted this review to Amazon with a 4-star rating:

The characters in Stripah Love are as rich and satisfying as a great order of onion rings. You will want to move to their neighborhood (but not too close), and for good reason. The story moves at a good pace and with intrigue enough to make you want to take it everywhere till you're done reading it. Stripah Love is a great ride with a satiating ending.

As a writer, I want to pass along my only critical commentary (if you can stand yet another opinion), here is why I didn't give it 5-stars:

You did a great job building characters through their actions, and the dialog was good, but sometimes the dialog didn't seem to match the personalities. This was especially true between Arthur and Cuzzin - sometimes their dialogs sounded more like monologs and the words they used didn't meet my internal expectations based on what I knew about their personalities.

That's it. And I can't wait to read more of your stuff!
