CHAPTER 1- The Kindrily

After receiving compliments from an editor/author that left me dancing and teary-eyed (happy grateful tears), I now feel confident enough to share my first chapter with more than just my beta readers.


So, in honor of this rainy day here in FL, Chapter 1 of The Kindrily has been posted to my website.

I hope it hooks you. Happy Friday!

  2. You have good reason to be proud! I jumped right over to read it and it's awesome. I really mean that. I am supposed to be cleaning the bathroom but it held my attention with every word. Hmm, so if the toilet remains dirty I'll have you to blame. ; )

    Great start to your story, it's packed full of action, emotion and leaves me wanting more. Awesome start. I'd love to read the rest sometime. Thanks for sharing!

  3. It's so cool when we can start getting feedback that tells us we're improving and getting closer to publication! We all need that and long for it! So congrats on moving one step closer! How exciting!

  4. Absolutely gorgeous writing. You must have really taken time, too, to get right the sensory descriptions of being injured like that, because it's believable and compelling. You should be proud and energized. I can't wait to see it published.

  5. I already went and re-read it! Somehow it has a very different feel being all official in PDF form - very magical. Loved it again. Now finish those edits for the rest!

  8. Thank you for letting us in. It's flawless. No more no less. looking forward for more... or do I have to wait till it's published? That would be just cruel ;-)

  10. Hi Karen,
    I read it yesterday? I think? Anyways, it was very, very good. You have such a strong voice and style. I really loved how you played up the eyes angle. And the way you wrote the accident seemed pretty unique to me.
    Thanks so much for sharing! :-) I hope you finish your revisions and can't wait to hear some querying news. *grin*
