View Full Version : Children's anthropomorphic animal story

Hi I need a beta reader for my children's anthropormorphic animal story. An agent has said

Reviews wouldnít persuade me. I always go with my own reaction to what I read. I couldnít help but think of Watership Down as I read your book because that story is about a war in their world. But I didnít see enough in the way of characterization at this point to work on a rewrite with you; action scenes arenít enough to draw me in. If you do a rewrite with a writing workshop, I would be happy to consider a new version of the ms.

So I need to look at developing characterisation so I can re-submit.

Just so you know, this was published in 1998 with British rights in UK only but was only marketed in book fairs. That contract has now expired and I am looking to polish the ms to submit to a new publisher/ agent, possibly overseas as first British rights have already gone.

Sorry, I need sounds awful. What I meant to say was I would really be grateful if someone could take a look and help me polish this novel and please the agent.
