This is an invitation for you to post a least one paragraph of your novel's opening in the forum thread On Writing (If I were an agent, I’d stop reading…..now)
The rules are on page 1 of the thread (please read and adhere to them.)
Thread page #:
Chapter 1: up to 600 words
The rest of us will pretend we're agents reading the partial we requested from you. If we make it all the way through without hitting a snag we’ll tell you. If we read something that trips us up, a spelling or grammar issue, a cliche, awkward structure, we’ll point out the spot where we stopped reading and mention why.
The main point of the thread is to get your book some attention and feedback. Our contributing faux agents are a diverse lot, so when it comes time to consider their advice, remember, caveat emptor.
If you take issue with something an agent said, or just want to start a debate or ask for additional feedback, go to the thread titled, “Faux agent water cooler” and post there.
