It's been awhile since I've written a journal, and since I've posted things. College has kept me busy, but I have taken a break from college work to work on a novel for National Novel Writing Month or Nano for short. It you aren't familiar with Nano, it is a challenge that is presented to any and all novelists if they choose to take it on. The goal is to write a 50,000 (or more) word novel in the month of November.
So since November 1st, I've been working on a novel for it. I'm around the halfway point in my novel, and word count, and I'm looking for Beta-readers! I currently will not be posting this novel to DA, but if you want to read it and give me some opinions, I'd really appreciate. Please understand, I am NOT looking for any real critiquing, I just want to know what people think of it so far. It is a very rough draft, and it will take a while to polish up before it's perfect, but I still like how it's progressing.
So if you want to be a beta-reader for me, please note me your email and I will send it in either a pdf file or a word doc (depending on your preference) and you can read the first half! And when I finish, I can send you the second half (unless you decide you really like it, and want the chapter by chapter updates).
I'd really appreciate anyone willing to be a beta-reader!
It may be nice to have a synopsis of the novel. Should have thought of that.
War has broken out between the Empires of Aria and Carand. One is led by a power-hungry King, while the other is led by a King of intolerance. How can peace exist with either of them on the throne? Years before a powerful priestess made a prophecy, and now it's time for it to come true.
"When the Two Kingdoms are ruled by Tyrants Two, The King shall fall by the hands of a monster. Only when his blood is spilt can peace be found in the Empires."
When the King of Carand declares the cursed Starling as the monster of lore, he fight to save his loved ones, and to set the world aright. But how can the gentle-hearted boy ever kill a King?
Thanks everyone! And Smile!
