Re: I'm offering free copies of my debut novel

Just a gentle nudge to the top. There's still most of a week to get your free copy. Check out the rave reviews: "I am loving it! I got the first 3 chapters read so far and I'll read more tomorrow.

OMG, this question is so relevant to me. I feel like my entire MS is breaking tense left and right. It's supposed to be told from 1st person POV, past tense. I keep finding myself confused about whether it's ok to use lines like, "Her nostrils flared and her lips tightened. I've never seen her so an...
