I’ve been accused of sometimes using too much gore in my book, The Kult. I don’t actually think it is that gory (I mean it is a book about a serial killer, and so there will be some blood along the way). Perhaps I’m just too desensitised to see it. So what do other people think? Can you go too far? One reviewer also couldn’t read it because some of the story is written from the killer’s point of view, which put them off. But is it so wrong if you want to get inside the killer’s head to actually write some of it from their perspective? Would that put you off reading?
