Need a volunteer to read my synopsis & first 5 chptrs


I am looking for a volunteer to read my submission for open door.

I would like someone who reads urban fantasy books, has never read my novel and can get back to me within a day or two.

I want to make sure the synopsis makes sense, is interesting and doesn't have typos, grammar errors or mistakes like the dreaded "that"s.

Please let me know if you are interested. Thanks!

I know nothing about urban fantasy, so probably not me...

I can look at it. I am going to Great America on Saturday so if it's really long then it might take me until Monday to get back to you. But I do know fantasy pretty well.

If you'd like another volunteer, I'd be happy to help. I enjoy Neil Gaiman's works and can probably get back to you pretty quickly. I'll U2U my e-mail address to you.

I have your book and I've read it, but I'd be happy to look at it again and compare to the synopsis. I have made some editing suggestions to your book, but haven't sent it to you at this point because I knew you weren't working on it for a while - well, and that you didn't ask me to do it! LOL Up to you if you'd like to see them.




Love and stuff,
Michy

Rissa,

Is your novel urban fantasy? Is it for the YA category?
