I just checked my reviews today and saw a new one came in addressing swear words. The reader writes,

"I like that you told a great story and you didn't have to use curse words. Thank you for that."

This isn't the first time I've received this comment and I love that readers are communicating their thoughts on this. However, this wasn't really a goal of mine when I wrote the book. I'm not pro or con swear words. I'm fine with them when they fit the story . . . (Click here for the poll:

John Johnson I think I agree with you. If they fit the story, then I don't have a problem with swear words. However, sometimes the words don't seem to fit the character (or my perception of the character). When that happens, I usually conclude the author included the word just to evoke a response. I'm not a fan of that.
