Something for You, Something for Me

So you've probably noticed I haven't been posting much recently. A lot of the reasons for this have been really tough real life stuff in what has been a hectic year filled with changing career, emigrating, my daughter's continuing health problems and issues with my own mental health. However, not all the reasons have been so bad. As I have alluded to a few times, I have been working on a novel over the last 13 months in an attempt to make a career from doing what I love - writing stories. I have just finished the third draft and while my friends and family claim to like it, I would be a fool to start looking for representation before getting the feedback of some readers who don't know me.

So here's the deal. I'm looking for some volunteers to read my book and give me honest feedback. For every person who emails me and asks for a copy, I will post a new caption in any style you enjoy. Call it a bribe if you like ;)

So what are you getting yourselves in for? My book is a young adult mystery with elements of horror and scifi. The main character is a sixteen year old boy shunned by the close knit community in which he lives because of his scarred face he's had since being a toddler. He instead lives much of his life inside his own head, fantasising of escaping and being someone else. That is until the world inside his head starts to overlap with the one outside leaving him unsure whether everyone he knows is really whom he thought they were, even himself.

Obviously it's not tg related but I really think if you enjoy my humour or the way I write character, you should give it a shot. I wold really appreciate it.

Lots of love

  1. Hi,

    Your book sound quite interesting and I can read it if you want. I am a PhD student, therefore my work requires reading and writing a lot. My first language is Spanish, I hope that is not a problem to you.
