What is your favorite part?
Your book was extraordinary! One question I have is what part of the book is favorite? My favorite part is when Judd makes a deal with marty that if he works 20 hours he will get Shiloh. The last question I have is why did you make Shiloh in the book a boy but the real Shiloh is a girl.
To be honest, Shiloh started out in my book as a female dog. But there were too many places where I talked about Marty “hugging and stroking her,” and I was a little afraid that if a boy who didn’t know what the book was about, picked it up and read a sentence like that, he might think Marty was hugging a girlfriend and not want to read any more. So to be on the safe side, I turned Shiloh into a male.
