I didn't write a blog this morning, but I'm inviting readers to read my column on Meridian. I tried something new, using four new novels I particularly enjoyed reading, to stress the importance of creating characters with the faults and foibles that make characters feel like real people. In each of the four books I reviewed, the flawed main character goes through a growth process, making him or her a better, stronger person. I would love having you add comments on this topic.  So here's the deal:  Everyone who comments by midnight Feb. 1, 2015, on the V-formation blog, on Notes from Jennie, on my Meridian column, or on Facebook will get their name in a drawing for my copy of one of these four books: Deadly Secrets by Frank Richardson, Wedding Cake by Josi Killpack, Lady Emma's Campaign by Jennifer Moore, or Danger Ahead by Betsy Brannon Green.

I always love your reviews and these ones all sound so good. Flawed heroes and heroines are much easier to relate to. Thanks for doing this, Jennie!

Most books have the flawed main character goes through a change process, making him or her a better, stronger person. Wouldn't be strange if stories did just the opposite. Having a real nice, good person as main character.Then they change into a real bad evil person. I guess that would be a Horror Book. I like the other type of book better.

I love reading your reviews, Jennie. I have an easier time relating to those heroes and heroines who have flaws. Probably because in real life their are flaws, and part of the journey is overcoming our flaws. Thank you so much for all the work you put into your writing, reviews, blogs, etc. I enjoy everything minute.
