Okay, I'm tired of seeing long-time published authors do everything in the book that debut authors would never get away with.
Currently reading Carla Neggars' book "Cold River" for research. The opening is nearly all backstory. In 8 pages I put the book down 6 times. Irritated is an understatement.
So, authors, get your manuscripts out. I'm feeling generous. You deserve to be helped and get published!
Post your FIRST 2 PARAGRAPHS of your FIRST CHAPTER here, and I'll give you my undeniably devilish feedback.
Please, no prologues. First chapters only. I'll review as many folks as I can. Your participation in comments is welcomed, too. Game on!
