I also thought the dialogue was forced. It seemed like Ms. Machado was struggling to make her characters use odd words and phrases just because they sounded "old timey". Overall, most of her characters' dialogue was very stilted. What character would you cut from The Curse Giver?
The manservant and the guard servio. The story was alright, but took too long getting there. The rhyming names made it annoying trying to remember when they were. Overall good read. There were a few times I had to go over a section or chapter again to get all of the information and details, but even then a few things didn't make sense to me.
I would definitely re-read to catch everything.

Ce que les membres d'Audible en pensent. I was doing research for Stonewiser: The Lament of the Stone , the third book of the Stonewiser trilogy, when I came across a picture of an ancient curse, written on a stone tablet. It was a protective curse, a warning, and it struck me as a very effective way of stopping someone from doing something, an attempt at law enforcement, justice and mind control, all in one.
I started to research curses and became fascinated by how pervasive curses are to the human story. I came across many different types of curses from all kinds of belief systems and from all over the world.

Even though they were all different, they were also very similar. Based on this powerful image, I came up with my premise and my heroine. My heroine, Lusielle, bears the mark that the Lord of Laonia hunts. But he is not her savior. So this is how the story begins, with Lusielle wondering if she should heal the bitter lord who is pledged to kill her and the Lord of Laonia set to kill the only woman who could heal not just his body but also his heart, while at the same time, together, they have to confront the curse giver who has already conjured their ends.
Do you have any plotting secrets? Do you use index cards or special software? No index cards or special software. Plotting takes place in my mind. In my opinion, the best plot twists ever are those that surprise everyone, including the author. What do you tell your muse when she refuses to collaborate? Many writers experience a vague anxiety before they sit down to write.
Can you relate to this? To me, is more like a disquieting, irresistible pull. I want to be writing all the time. Not writing feels like a hardship. Do you have a writing schedule? Do you set yourself weekly goals for your writing? I write every day that I can possibly write and for as long as I can manage it.

With an edit! Seriously, the first thing I want to do when I finish a draft is read it again. The champagne is usually reserved for the finished product, although it has been known to make occasional appearances when a novel is accepted for publication and when the cover hits my screen. After so many years working nine to five, I love the freedom of setting my own schedule, the fact that I can work in my pajamas, and the absolute satisfaction that comes from spending hours at the keyboard.
