While I'm flattered you want to read my manuscript THE ICICLE CRIMINAL, I have a few concerns regarding the little changes you suggested.
First, changing Harry to a woman seems like a drastic move to make the novel more multi-layered. Also, could you please give me an idea of where you're going by putting the new protagonist 'Mary' in a lesbian relationship with Maggie? Yes, having the children be twin quadriplegics would lend sympathy to Mary's character, but wouldn't this entail a rewrite on the scale of Waterworld? Do twin quadriplegics eat hot wings and pizza?
My spouse has graciously agreed to forgo the C class and is considering an Acura.
Enclosed please find the requested manuscript with the suggested changes.
