Die! Die!

Tess Gerritsen has an interesting post up on her blog about killing off characters http://tessgerritsen.com/blog/2007/12/31/kill-the-character/#comments

(personally I probably would have cheered if she HAD killed off Jane Rizzoli, but that’s me)

 I really wanted to kill off a specific character in the book I currently have out on submission. I started the book knowing that this character was going to die, and I was fine with that, but then my DH started lobbying for the character not to die. He’s my first reader and he really, REALLY didn’t want the character to die.

So in this version, the character doesn’t die.  DH is happy.  And I think I am too, BUT I don’t think I would have been unhappy if I had killed the character off.
