When I was in college I took a class on the essentials of writing. The professor (and the writing lab) stressed that the opening sentence had to draw the reader in and make them want to continue reading. I never really mastered that skill, but Cynthia St. Aubin certainly did. From the opening paragraph, the reader knows that what they are going to read is going to entertain.
Unlovable is in a class by itself, in that it is not like anything I have read before. It's kind of like an R rated Charmed (you remember Charmed, don't you?) in that the reader is being introduced to Cupid, mobsters, a sexy demigod, and a lecherous security guard, when they all show up in Dr. Matilda Schmidt, (Psy.D, Ph.D) office and reign havoc on her life and good sense.
My hope is that Unlovable will be turned into a full length book and this will just be the first chapter. Happy reading.
