The Ghost Sister review: author's response

I'm writing to thank you for taking the trouble to review my novel, Ghost Sister. While it's naturally disappointing for me that you disliked the book, I must grit my teeth, don my objective hat and say that it's always useful to have dissenting opinions - how else is one to learn? (plus, it's as nothing to the kicking the novel got when it was in its early drafts. I shall be honest and say that pace was a problem for a number of people).

You obviously take some care over your reviews, and it seems like a good site - I'm a reader as well as a writer, so the more review sites, the better. I've passed the URL round (NOT, please note, so that my mates can write you snide emails) and I'll make sure you get a copy of the next book from me (Empire of Bones, out in April). I confess to a certain masochistic apprehension, but who knows? you might prefer this one and even if you don't like it, I'll be interested to see what you have to say.

best wishes
Liz Williams
