Re: Romantic Paranormal Fiction reader needed

Thank you very much for the offer. I will most likely take you up on that sometime in the future. For sure, the nice folks that looked over my stuff were not being mean. They gave me exactly what I asked for and needed. I've posted a couple of revised pages here on these forums and there seems to be...

Re: Romantic Paranormal Fiction reader needed

Hi, thanks for the sympathy post. :-) You're absolutely right about it not being ready for a beta read. Definitely not then and probably not even now. I have been working on it steadily since I posted this thread. The problem is that most people think their writing is awesome and people who love you...

Re: The Baker, The Puppeteer, and The Man In Pieces: First pages

I'm not much of an editor, but as a reader, I liked it. If there were more to it, I would definitely continue reading. :-)

Voodoo Dues - UF Excerpt

Hello! This is an excerpt from the first chapter of my UF manuscript titled Voodoo Dues. Any feedback would be helpful and greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance for any advice offered. Crouching behind a headstone in a cemetery, ruining a pair of designer heels is not how I normally spend my Sat...

Re: Forty Winks first page -YA paranormal adventure

I wanted to jump in here and say that I thought it was very good. I agree that some of the descriptions of his surroundings could be worked into the action. Overall though, I liked it very much. Nice sense of dread.

Re: Writer's website - opinions appreciated

J.T. - You wouldn't but there is always going to be that one wise ass that will nitpick me to death over using the wrong car image on my site. Trust me, I know more than one of those.

As far as the fairie bit, I'm loling at your pain. I'll admit that I had to look up shillelagh to see what it was.

Re: Writer's website - opinions appreciated

Caroline - Thank you so much for the positive feedback. I think that self hosting the blog on my site is one of the better decisions that I have made. If you find the right host, it can be as little trouble as one click to make it happen. As for the car, there are tons of cool 1960s cars. I've alway...

Re: Writer's website - opinions appreciated

It's good to know that there's not a lot of difference in those model years. Otherwise I would have been obsessing over the right picture to correct my mistake tomorrow.

My main character drives a 61. That is the closest that I could come in the right color.

Re: Writer's website - opinions appreciated

With all of the great advice that I've gotten here, I did a redesign on my site. I hope that it has a more urban fantasy feel now.

Re: Writer's website - opinions appreciated

Sommer - Your banner is beautiful. As are the other two sites you linked. I love the thought of being able to convey the world that your novel is set in with a website. Honestly though it makes my head hurt trying to think of a way to do it with mine. Never let it be said that I wasn't up for a chal...
