I’m shocked at the emotional response to exclamation points (yes, I’m tempted to include one here, but have refrained). A couple reviewers of my books have responded loud and clear with their hatred of this form of punctuation. They spurred me to do a fourth pass edit of Loving You and I’ve removed all but a few of the dreaded mark.
