This is my 2nd draft of Hubris and Hemlock, a very short novel (40k words or 150 pages), which is Women’s Fiction, so: 1. Relationships are Key, and 2. The Heroine saves Herself. But my question, before I go to polishing the prose, is: Does the plot hold your interest? Especially Chapter 17, the climactic chapter.
I plan to post the last chapter shortly, but it is just a wrap-up, so if chapter 17 doesn’t work, neither will chapter 18.
Thank you for any feedback,
