Review Request: The Surprising Life and Death of Diggory Franklin

11 years ago | G.S. Williams (Member)

"The Surprising Life and Death of Diggory Franklin" has been on the WFG since 2008, so it might seem funny that I'm requesting a review. However, timing is everything -- there were editor reviews in 2008, 2009 and 2010, and they helped me to put the story in perspective and see how well it was working. Now, I've just finished Book 9 (The Shocking Trial!) and it's an excellent point for a retrospective look, as it brought back almost every character from all 9 books and it's building towards the inevitable September that Calla Wiley predicted would see the demise of Diggory.

Book 10 leads up to those events, and then the story is going to be drastically different -- I don't want to give anything away other than my writing is exciting me lately, so I've been updating daily out of sheer enthusiasm. So I feel this is the best time to ask for people to take a serious look at the entire series to date and share their thoughts, even if it's just to update an old review. I'd love to see new viewpoints on the story as it takes a new direction as well.

In addition, we're running a bonus story incentive that for every 5 reviews on WFG I'll explore side stories through the other characters, deepening the story mythology, so you'll be helping my readers get more of what they enjoy!

Thanks in advance,

    We're at 11 reviews (thanks Silvertongue!) so 4 more and my readers get a bonus -- and I'd appreciate the feedback, given that this labour of love is almost 3 years old now.
