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!

I'll have to go read it! Good for you for posting it!ReplyDelete
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. ; )ReplyDelete
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!
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!ReplyDelete
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.ReplyDelete
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!ReplyDelete
Very enjoyable and well written. Thank you for sharing!ReplyDelete
Liked your first chapter! Interesting concept, and I'm excited to know more about the Kindrily since they're not established yet.ReplyDelete
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 ;-)ReplyDelete
Thanks so much! I've been drowning in my final revision process before querying so I'm slacking on my blogging. But thank u for the support!ReplyDelete
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*
Read it...WOW you pulled me right in. You're very talented! And your website design is fun and nice to look at!ReplyDelete
Thanks for stopping by my blog. I just checked out your first chapter, great job! Definitely made me want to read more. Good luck with it.ReplyDelete
Awesome story!! I loved how you jumped right into the action and pulled me there too! Congrats on getting great feedback on it! I can see why:))ReplyDelete
I already posted on how impressed I was with the chapter you shared but I wanted to let you know I shared a blog award with you so stop by and check it out!ReplyDelete
This is really good! I'm so glad I (finally) get to read it ;) WOO HOO for revisions! :DReplyDelete
I'm trying to open it but it's not letting me...maybe I need to reboot my computer. How very fun for you to post it. And congrats on the encouraging words given by the editor :)ReplyDelete
oh wow! Just read it. It's incredible!ReplyDelete
Tess, make sure you have a PDF reader on your computer =)ReplyDelete
I love it! Very intriguing!ReplyDelete
