What’s so different about my books?

I asked three people why my books are different to others. 

“I find them in the middle of what I normally read. So I either read very child orientated books or very gruesome ones. Your books are a good balance in between. Also I love fantasy books, but yours aren’t similar to others I’ve read, which is really good as it’s not a rehash of the same old story.” -Babs.

I couldn’t get my head around why my books are dissimilar.
Since I don’t read a lot of fantasy. 

“You don’t read a lot of fantasy do you? I find it different because of the magical abilities. You have a more broader range of characters and you focus more on the characters more than the scene they are in, though your scene building is awesome. While generic fantasy will have generic powers like fireball, iceblast e.t.c. and will focus more on the scenery the characters are in.” Evan. 

“It’s what I’ve said for a while, unique fantasy whilst keeping in the standard fantasy tropes you wan’t, but done well. It’s hard to explain verbally.  They have a good balance of adult and light hearted humor.” -David. 

I think I kind of understand now. Though, if you have a comment to add why you think they’re different to the norm. I’d love a comment.

How many books can you say do this?

An excerpt from an email received by my now Editor, Elaine Denning.

I’ve just finished reading Destiny of the Wulf and thought you might like my feedback!

As you can probably imagine (due to my choice of career), I’ve been an avid reader for all of my life, often devouring books at a rate of four or five per week. As such, I’ve read a lot of books from every imaginable genre, bar one. I’ve tried many times to read fantasy and for some reason it has never managed to hold my interest. I didn’t even get past the third chapter of Harry Potter, and as much as I’ve tried to tackle it, Lord of the Rings is still unread on my bookcase.

I wanted to let you know that information so you’d understand the importance of what I’m about to say. I not only finished your book in three sittings but I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Seriously, I was gripped and couldn’t put it down, and that absolutely astounds me.  I really believe you’ve done something extraordinary: you’ve written something that I believe is capable of opening up this genre to the masses. As I’m obviously not a die-hard fantasy fan, I have no idea how it compares. But the mere fact that I willingly and excitingly kept reading speaks volumes to me, so thank you for my first, full fantasy experience.

I’m not entirely sure how you managed to do it, and I’ve been pondering it for a while now, but I think it’s the ease in which I was drawn into your fantasy world. Every scene just seemed so natural and I didn’t even question how or why something weird or strange was happening. You created a world I believed in, fantastic, multi-layered characters, a great plot and enough twists and turns to keep me turning the pages.

As a child, my brother tried so many times to get me interested in Doctor Who and Star Trek, to no avail. I believed fantasy worlds were stupid and could never see beyond that to the stories that lay within. “It doesn’t matter where the story is set,” he’d say to me, “just look a bit deeper and find the reality within.” I’d shoo him away, never giving him the benefit of the doubt. I think I owe him an apology because  if you weren’t paying me to edit Underworld, I’d be buying it to see what happens next.

Well, that’s my completely unexpected review as a reader.

Other than that, seriously Harrison, it’s a fantastic read. Well done! I really can’t wait to edit the rest of Underworld – I’m desperate to find out what happens!
