To be honest, I jumped the gun.
I loved writing the story. I loved reading it. I loved the concept, the plot, the characters, and the writing was good. But it just didn't have that WOW factor.
The concept, while cool, was too much like X-Men. Each incident was fun to write but nothing much happened. I could see the characters in my head, but they weren't special. And not eve good writing could save it.
I still love the story, and maybe I'll come back to it and rewrite it. But if I want to be a writer as my career, I need to make a product my readers deserve. As much as I love Stranger, you guys deserve better. And I hope with my two books coming out soon, I'll deliver.
