So in order to just jump right in, here's the deal:
If you'd like some feedback in the comment box on whether or not the first page of your latest (or not so latest) manuscript "hooks" the reader, here's what you need to do:
Email me your first page (up to 250 words) at AuthoressMail (at) gmail.com between now and Thursday at 9:00 am EDT.
Beginning Thursday afternoon, I will post each entry as a separate blog post. Readers are invited to post "Yes, I'm hooked!" or "No, I'm not hooked" in the comment box beneath your entry. It would be most helpful if the "no" answers are accompanied by reasons why (kindly stated, of course).
All genres except erotica are okay by me.
And remember, nobody's giving a "professional opinion" here (unless, of course, you happen to be an agent or editor yourself). This is all about "testing the waters;" seeing if we can "hook" readers into wanting more of our stories.
Are you game? I hope so! Post any questions in the comment box here.
