In response to Carolyn See's review of my novel, "Laguna Heat" (Aug. 26), I find it irritating that she misspelled the name of my main character throughout the article.
I find it petty that See claims the book cover is "too good" for the book itself. Shall I commission a not-so-good one for my next novel?
I find it irresponsible for the reviewer to suggest that "there's money riding on this book--lots of it." How much? Where did she find this booty? Is she willing to share it?
More importantly, I take it as a personal and professional insult when the reviewer suggests that I "and perhaps even the publishers" sat down to contrive a rip-off of a novel ("Tapping the Source"). I've never done such a thing and never will. A simple checking of publication dates would have revealed that "Laguna Heat" was finished before the other book even appeared in print.
