Thanks Risk, this is book three now. I've barely put finger to keyboard since the second was published nearly eighteen months ago, so I thought i'd better check it still had something good in there.

That first paragraph is just, no.

You can write but you've posted far too much to read. Cut it and separate the paragraphs. Get rid of the first one though, imo.

As far as I'm concerned equality between the sexes can only be a good thing. I'd even go so far as to let women get jobs. Obviously only once they've the housework but still, open it up to them I say.

I always end my stories by having the main character wake up and realise it was only a dream. Either that or alien abduction.
