  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
  2. Shoot me a PM i'll gladly read your book.

    Aargh, jomo, I can't! I'm too new!! It won't let me send a PM yet!

  15. Hi Shuppy puppy, looks like you may have your 'few' guinea pigs, but if you dont mind a couple of extras, i'd like to have a read?
  16. I'll jump in the queue as well, though feedback might take be a week or two until I'm done with most of my uni stuff.
  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...
