This was welcome:
Just a quick note to say the reason I did not give you feedback on your ‘Tom Fleck’ after I finished it is because as soon as I had finished I wanted to remain in that world so I started reading it all over again. It was great, so evocative.
This came in from Mandy Sutter, one of my several writing tutors (you can’t have too many):
Hi Harry, just wanted to say how much I’m enjoying Tom Fleck. It’s a page turner, excellently paced, and all the characters are drawn with empathy and completely believable. I love the way animals (dogs, oxen, birds, horses, etc) have such presence in the novel. The language and the evocation of a life long gone are brilliant. Top stuff!
