August: Would You Give a Second Chance?













Holly says, "How did you feel about the ending? Do you think you would have given Kamran a second chance?"

I don't think it is about a second chance for Kamran, I think Miranda realized that she liked him for the wrong reasons. Maybe they will become interested in each other again after they really get to know each other.

Second chances are generous but tricky. I've done it, but I liked the way this one ended...

I agree, Melissa. Those first responses are often the best.

Libraryunderworld, I agree. That's what I was hoping to get to. :) Thanks, Melissa!

When I first started writing tmas, I thought Kamran was going to be the deadbeat boyfriend who split at the first sign of problems...but then as I was getting to know him, I knew he wasn't that kind of guy. But he could be in denial and go for some serious distraction to support it so that he could continue with his goals. I hope that made him more real, but also understandable as a character. Forgiveness is a significant value for me, but sometimes it's very hard!
