Re: The consolidated writings of popcornjack

For all of you who have read the novel, I have a question:

Who do you consider to be the main character?

I ask because I'm trying to write the query letter (basically the one page letter that convinces agents to read-and ultimately help you sell-your novel) and as I'm getting feedback on it from a writer's community I'm part of, I'm starting to wonder which character is the more dynamic and therefore more likely to attract the interest of an agent. Thanks.
Take me for what I am, a star newly emerging.
I accept the new found man, and I set the twilight reeling.

Admittedly it's been a while since I read the book ... but ... my impression (feeling, supposition?) was that Kyle was the main character.
But I'm kinda simple-minded so maybe it was all a little too deep for me. [smilie=noeyedear-shrugging.gif]

I know I have some friends who are here and not on facebook, so I'm going to make a more concerted effort to post updates here as well.
