I have a hard time writing dialogue, and often feel like my characters are a little flat. But, I'm starting to feel better about that. I keep reading novels that have bigger issues than mine that managed to get published anyway! I finished another book, Silence the Whispers by Cait London. Again, the plot was really good. Lots of suspense, and a mystery to be solved. Granted, I solved it before the characters, but I'm okay with that.
What bothered me was the characters. The two main characters were so-so. There were moments when they seemed contrived, but overall, they were okay. The rest of the characters were horrible. Cameron, the main female, came with a trio of female friends. I don't remember any of their names, nor could I tell them apart during the novel. They all read like shadows of Cameron. Really sad, considering one of them was vital to the plot.
All I'm looking for is a few good characters!
