I must say though that the continual use of capitalized words randomly placed in hundreds of places in the book are distracting, annoying and unnecessary. Capital words are SHOUTING and people do not shout random words in sentences when they are talking normally. I would suggest Alecia that you consider changing them to lower case and uploading a new file because as it is now it is jarring to say the least and to be honest I nearly stopped reading after the first 10% as I found it so annoying - my 2cents worth.
Is presentimg as female and nack to "he" wjen she has to go back to hiding, then finally in a personal epiphany moment she goes fully to using the female pronouns for the MC all the time. In a word, Masterful!! This is a part of being trans* that many cis people don't get, the fact that even after we can stop lying to ourselves that the general presumption of our gender is wrong, we still mentally have tell ourselves it's ok to drop the mask. Not out of doubt but out of fear, and a desire for peace, because once we make that shift in our own thinking and drop the mask from our own mental mirrors it becomes harder and harder to maintain the lie around others.We become vulnerable. In short, I love this book and definitely recommend it for everyone who is or thinks they might be a girl inside desperately screeming to be herself. That is AFTER you find a good therapist who specializes in gender dysphoria treatment.
A spellchecker will catch many low-level technical errors. There are many others it won’t: wrong-word errors, missing-word errors, extra-word errors, punctuation mistakes, problems in paragraphing and quote-mark distribution, unstable character and place names, and so on. The original author is almost always unable to find them, which is why a sharp-eyed proofreader is a necessity. It’s a bit like why a smart lawyer accused of a crime will hire another lawyer to represent him: he knows he’s too close to the subject matter to see it properly.
The mid-level errors are beyond the reach of any automated technique: poor viewpoint control (a.k.a. head-hopping), excessive use of adverbs as dialogue tags, a “time traveling narrator,” the omission of details that become important later on, the expository lump, and excessive description that causes the reader to “skip ahead.” Two of these – poor viewpoint control and too many dialogue tags – seriously detracted from this reader’s enjoyment of “Late Nite Princess.” There were also a couple of significant expository lumps – backstory embedded in the narrative that throws the reader out of the story’s main timeline – but they were less intrusive than the other problems. Finding and noting these is the responsibility of a professional editor / critiquer. Indie writers tend to balk at the fees such editors charge. Trust me on this: ***we all need them.***
Most wearying of all are the villain figures, not one of whom has any significant dimension to him. Worse yet, they’re caricatures of the categories from which they were pulled: school athletes and Christians. I have no doubt that there are some persons in those categories who behave badly toward transgenders and persons of different sexual orientations. But to see them used over and over again suggests that there’s room for more imagination here.
Despite those things, “Late Nite Princess” remains a solid emotional journey, an appealing tale I’m happy to have read. It’s on the margin of four stars; say, about 3.8. But Miss Snowfall can and should do better, both for her own sake and for the sake of a fictional sub-genre that’s becoming ever more visible and important. She’s got obvious storytelling talent, plus several books under her belt; it’s time to make the changes that will propel her fiction to the next level.
