This is a follow up to the review I posted the other day, from a reader who read my first five chapters on Jottify. I posted up chapters 6 and 7 and this is what she had to say:
Great continuation – it reads like a published novel, flawlessly. I could repeat everything from my first comment for these chapters – great characterization, it flows perfectly, gripping narrative, intriguing plots and subplots… But how could you be so cruel as to leave such a cliffhanger…!?
And then I posted Chapter 8:
Love the new chapter – the dialogue, the romance, the action, the internal debate / struggle, you pack a lot in, which makes it an eminently enjoyable read
… yeah, the rest be spoilers, so, no, not here.
If you feel so inclined, I have the first 10 Chapters available on:
and Authonomy (since this is the one that would increase my chances of being picked up for publishing, this is the one I’d be keen for support on).
I realize I may be jumping the gun, but I am eager. Plus, I have been working on this thing for over three years (not long compared to some) and I can truly sense the end is nigh … and then there are those scenes for book 2 that are already hijacking my brain … I can’t wait to write them and figure out exactly how I shall shape that phase of the tale.
Still hope/expect to have this draft in the bag in 2 months. But, please don’t point and laugh if I don’t. I’m sure there will be a reason. But, I do find that posting chapters up (and receiving positive feedback) does help force me to knuckle down and get on with it … but, first I have to go compile that darn newsletter. Right, yes. Procrastination end.
