about me

Don't send me a message and ask me to read yours. I'm busy writing and have friends who have asked me to read theirs, so of course they are first. I will read and back those who back mine much faster than those who just ask me to read theirs and don't read and back mine.

I've been here before but needed to spend time on the novel. I'm back with a new opening, new name. I hope you enjoy this new start and can give me some critique on what I have posted. I will be posting more as I complete final revisions. The novel is complete, part of a 4 part series.

You asked for a read, and I normally don't respond until after others have read mine. But today's a day of editing and distractions, so I'm allowing myself some time away and picked yours up. After beginning the read, I did something I seldom do, which is read the comments before writing my own. I ... view book

I've spent a lot of time working with and living around Hispanics who actually call themselves Mexican. They are third or fourth generation Americans who's grandparent, great-grandparents immigrated from Mexico. Many speak Spanish, but in everyday life, they don't mix the Spanish with the English.... view book

ch. 1, second sentence is a run-on sentence. Like the way it starts with dialogue, moves well at this point, slows later on with a long narrative section--infodump and too much tell, need more show. Paragraph where she's walking home, discussing her home life--"...to help towards the rent etc. (al... view book

This has potential to be an interesting story -- the story develops well, the characters work well together and you have given them some depth. However, the first chapter starts when they are in school -- the rest of it is all tell, too much backstory. All that information could be brought in in p... view book
