comment Legal ramifications for writing about fictional relationships with celebs
Your advice regarding writing about persons already dead is not totally correct, at least as far as celebrities are concerned. One state here in the US (California) has restrictions on what you can write about deceased celebrities (See en.wikipedia.org/wiki/California_Celebrities_Rights_Act) and New York was entertaining the act at one time as well.

@Smithers, good suggestion. I linked to the wikis rather than amazon since they contained more detail. I added Farmer's as well.

Without knowing what type of professionals you are interested in having review your book, it's hard to answer your question.

comment Critique: three person dialogue
I'd find it easier to follow if either Adele or Anny's name started with something other than "A".
