Today I was once again at the local bookstore where I spotted Karen's newest book, "The Prodigal Mage." I took it down from the New Release shelf just to see how quickly she--- two sentences. Yes, two sentences in, "he cried" springs off the page. Apparently the hero of the story (I assumed he's the hero, I didn't investigate that far), asked his father if he could join him on a trip when he was six. When his "Da" said no, "he cried."
I swear, if Karen Miller wrote the novelization of The Searchers John Wayne would have beaten the indians by flooding the desert with his tears.
EDIT: Oh, and I saw the Star Wars Atlas book, and it's pretty darn amazing!
