Q:What is a deal breaker for you in a book? For example, do you abhor love triangles? Or can’t deal with bad editing?
There are two big deal breakers for me.
1. Poor main characters – there’s a fine line between ‘slightly flawed’ and downright irritating – I know you want your characters to seem human, but that doesn’t mean they can’t have SOME redeeming features.
2. Forced-seeming relationships – you know the ones, where someone is in love with a character and you can’t understand why, or where there’s a really sudden change from maybe-there’s-something-there to “we’re soulmates”.
