Wow. I just got a surprising letter from a diva in the making and I’d appreciate it if you’d read it and let me know what you think. I haven’t responded yet, but when I do, I’ll share it here.
To Whom it may concern,
It has recently come to my attention that you, Ms. James, have been throwing out flippant half-promises about a possible novella in the future. A novella starring a newcomer to the Casteloria series. A novella staring Gannon Kearney, to be specific.
I would appreciate it if you would take into consideration the following facts. Rather fact, and that fact is, I—Quinn MacMahon—have been with the series since the beginning—and if anyone deserves their own novella, it should be me.
Seriously. First, you make me sound like the bearded love child of Mr. Clean and a bald and bulked up John Travolta. Not that it’s an entirely bad thing. I mean neither one of them are ugly but I certainly don’t see what you see when I look in the mirror either. I think we need to clear that misconception up as soon as possible.
Secondly, I’m intelligent, I’m willing to put my life on the line for my friends, and though you all but ignored me in Fin and Nolan’s books, you did give your readers a hint that I have a good heart and sense of humor in Laying Low in Paradise.
So why, I ask, would you consider Gannon Kearney to be more deserving of a story than me, Ms. James? Because of his family situation? I’d like to point out that that’s not really fair since you’ve never seen fit to mention my family. I find some of them to be very interesting, not to mention highly entertaining.
Please note that I’ve given away no spoilers in this letter. Not so much as a hint of a spoiler. That could change if I need to address this matter again. After all, if it comes down to it, I think your readers deserve to know where your head is at concerning another installment for the series. They deserve a vote. Who would they rather read about? Someone who has been here through thick and thin? Through three books? Or someone they just met in A Cold Day in Paradise?
Consider this a formal complaint and please file it accordingly.
