My name is Nonnahswriter. A lot of you know me for my silly comments and Firefly memes and my vague hint-dropping of a Baldur's Gate fanfic I've been writing for what seems like forever (which I will
get back to, eventually). As many of you might have already guessed by now, I am a writer. I like writing novels, drafting timelines, interviewing characters, building lore... You know, the same stuff that has helped create the wonderful story of Baldur's Gate, and so many others.
During November, and throughout much of December, I wrote a novel. It's gone through one round of revision since then, but if I want to get it published and start building a career, I need some help. I need readers, lots of them who are willing to tell me honestly where my book works and where it does not.
This is the first forum that I've been consistently active on in many years; you guys are awesome, wonderful, intelligent people, and I can think of no place better to garner much-needed feedback from a wide array of voices. Keep in mind, though, that I know some of you better than others, and I withhold the right to not
share with whoever asks. I know: this is the Internet. This is also my book
we're talking about, countless hours spent crafting words out of blood, sweat, and tears. Caution is necessary.
Here's a little about the book to persuade
help you decide:
Our hero is Scar, a grim reaper who's sold his soul in service of the death goddess. The job comes with a few perks--immortality, power, and in Scar's case, bed-sharing privileges with the goddess herself. A fair deal...except for his eternal slavery in the Deathlands, and the not-so-pleasant rule that if Scar disobeys his Mistress, he'll be incinerated. Yet everything changes when Scar's given a bizarre new task: to observe a young girl trapped in a tower, and report anything strange. A simple job, far too menial for his liking; never does Scar expect to like the girl, or become her friend. And if he wants to protect her, Scar must turn against everything that has chained him down to Deathlands. A choice that could cost not only his new friend's life, but also his own.
So I ask again: who wants to read a good book? If you're interested, send me a PM. Feel free to ask questions in the comments if you have them!
And, of course, thank you.
