Not nearly rough and tough enough

by Anna Louise Lucia
(Cumbria, England)

My favourite for laughs is the one that said, "I'm sorry, but your book is not nearly rough and tough enough."

This for a book which opens with CCTV footage of the heroine killing three gunmen.

BUT it did illustrate, to me, the influence voice can have on a story. I write with a very English style and voice - it didn't matter WHAT happened, it's how I was telling it that made it "not nearly rough and tough enough" for them.

If you're referring to Run Among Thorns, they were crazy! I loved that book, and it was rough and tough enough for me.
