I’ve been wondering recently just what it is that keeps some readers from wanting to look at No Going Back, prompted in part by several comments on a blog from people who said they’d seen descriptions of the book and decided they didn’t want to read it. One of them will now be reading the book and writing a review. I’ll be interested to find out what she thinks of it, and whether her fears/presuppositions turn out to be justified. (This was originally written several weeks ago. See below for the rest of the story.)
In the meantime… What is it about my book that pushes some people — natural members of the audience I’m trying to reach with the book (adults, readers, believing members of the LDS faith) — away from a choice to read?
