I'm posting this novel's fourth draft here as I write it, with print publication as the goal.

I invite you to read it, hope you enjoy it, and welcome all feedback!

Doesn't seem to be any text here. Am I missing something?

The above comment was written, by the way, after I'd merely set this blog up, but hadn't yet posted any content. I'm leaving it there because I don't want to be perceived as removing or discounting any feedback.

Do you not worry that no publisher is going to pay for something that has been made available free on the internet?

Curt said...

Nope! In the first place, this is not a final draft, but a rough one I'm sharing primarily in the hopes of getting feedback (so any comments you may like to post would be appreciated!). What's more, it was the audience David Wellington drew by posting Monster Island online that landed him a multi-book deal. If I should happen to break out that way, so much the better, but I'm not counting on it; I just really don't think this will hurt me.

I like this. You should join the Dark Fiction Guild. It's been pretty useful to me. Check it out.

The Theme and main Plot line is excellent, very detailed. You might want to let the readers know more about the characters. Descriptions, emotional reactions, and how they would react in the situations, especially about your main characters. I think you will have a First Class Novel when this is finished.

Thanks Big Adam! I didn't realize my character work seemed that sparse, so that's helpful feedback.

I read this and I enjoyed it very much. Its sexy, rough, exciting it kept me interested the whole way thru and that is rare that I find something so damn kool to read. I would like to know what else have you written. :)
