I am saving my reading for later, but I wanted to say: yay! You've done it! I did look at the art work, and cloudless_9193 did a gorgeous job, didn't she? I love the fractured montage. It makes me look forward to the story all the more!

Congratulations to you both!

that is so great to know, thank you! your comment about the spirit of the 70s cop show really means a lot to me because it's something I actively try to create (helped along by back to back watching of Pros episodes while I write) :) xx

Congratulations! A really enjoyable story, with intrigue both from the case plot and trying to figure out the article.

Loved the ending, too.

Art works very well, and adds an extra dimension - good job!

I throughout enjoyed this story!
A good idea. Hehe Bodie reading Cosmopolitan.
And yes that Hakka villain is very entertaining. :-)

The art is absolutely stunning and very professional!

Thank you both!

Yay, more Kindle fodder! Fantastic artwork, and an intriguing teaser to get me interested! I'll comment properly once I have glutted myself on the story.

Congratulations to both on posting - lucky us!

My kindle is bursting at the seams too, isn't this great?!!
shooting2killshooting2kill on October 10th, 2012 07:20 pm (UTC)
I thought this was such a good read and I thoroughly enjoyed it! I loved the basic idea of the article, the way you maintained for the reader the intrigue and mystery surrounding it and the way you managed to weave the suspense, action and excitment of everyday Ci5 business with the question mark over what Bodie is up to.

A really clever idea and, as I say, I really enjoyed it. Thanks a lot!
inlovewithboth on October 10th, 2012 08:03 pm (UTC)
thanks so much S2K! Can I let you into a little secret? At first I wrote the story of the article, thinking that was going to be the extent of the plot. I finished - 5,000 words. Panic set in. I needed to find another 10,000 for the BB. So I created the bomb plot and wove it into the relationship story. And for ages I worried whether it had been the right thing to do. For you to remark on that very 'weaving' means a great deal to me, so thank you very much indeed. xx
