  1. Hi everyone,

    I have just finished a fiction novel about freestyle motocross and I am working on looking for a publisher. While I do that, I thought it might be a good idea to try it out on a few "guinea pigs" from my target audience, and I was wondering if anyone would be willing to have a look and tell me if it is any good or not!

    I envisage that it would be for older teenagers/young adults (approx 17-23) and I warn that it does contain quite a bit of "colourful" language.



    Thanks for your time, and sorry if I wasted it

  17. I'd happily read it...give me a break from my own writers block.

    I studied editing for a few years so, if you're thick skinned, I MIGHT be able to offer some helpful feedback...and I wont steal too many of your ideas...
