Re: Mortimers Dream, YA fantasy *UPDATE PG 2*

Thanks again Quill, I did originally wish to call them faries, but i am getting alot of negative response to the unusual spelling. I always associate fairy with little girls story books, but if it is distracting and looks like a spelling error i might have to change it. I have used your suggestions ...

Re: Mortimers Dream, YA fantasy *UPDATE PG 2*

OK, this is a new option for the first paragraph, let me know what you think. Desmoree Shale thought life as a fashion photographer was full of excitement. But waking up in the morgue and being flown by a farie to the hidden world her mother grew up in was where the real excitement began. Too long? ...

Re: First try at a Query Letter for Devin Briar

This query does need a lot of work, but the story sounds interesting. so when you are ready to try again, i would be happy to take a look. Happy Inkin...

Re: The Whip-Slip query

Hi, I really enjoyed your query, The use of Left-Hander as a character name seemed a little awkward, and took several reads to get used to. I think you are using it as a reference to the hand of the devil, but i wonder if a more strait forward name would flow better. Seventeen-year-old Thea Vans wi...
