    "This Earth That Holds Me" has a LOT of potential. Your writing is wonderful. The descriptions are very good and your dialogue is right on the mark. The story is also good, but drags quite a bit in the middle. I understand that the focus of the story is the relationship between Ames and Cleburne, but some of those scenes really drag.

    Thanks again and best of luck with your own work,

    Tony

    Hauge's really solid, no nonsense. If character development is important in your writing, I'd recommend Dara Marks' "The Inside Story" even if you don't use her model.
