Holding Out for a Hero

You know it’s funny, a beta reader finished up a book for me recently and told me that my hero in that book was a lot more complicated and messy than they were expecting.  When I asked, how so?  They told me that unlike my other heroes, this one didn’t seem to have a stand up straight line between right and wrong.  Definitely curious now, I asked how so? Well, they couldn’t really give me an absolute definition.  But they said, you know Sam Kane (my hero in Marshal of Hel Dorado), he was a stand up guy. You knew […]
