Oh I'm well, thank you. Just introducing myself here, on the recommendation of a friend of mine. Aspiring author here, hoping to eventually put the beta service to good use.

My first book series is a modern paranormal romance. The first book is finished (well, as finished as I can make it on my own) and I'm hard at work on the second. Also working on the concept/characters for a second series that takes place within the same "universe".

I admit, I have a hard time with criticism when unsolicited, but when asked for and presented to me, I'm all for it. I want to be the best I possibly can be at this, and I need to hear the likes and dislikes as they come.

Thank you very much. I'm checking out some of the "how to write a query" threads, as I'm really stuck on how to describe my book in one paragraph, and already they are helping a great deal. I'm so happy this place exists, I just wish I had found it sooner!

Welcome to AW. Hope you enjoy your stay with us.
How do you like your popcorn?

If you go to the bottom of the page to the 'forum jump' you can scroll down and find all the areas of this place. After you post 50 posts you can use the SYW areas to get help there. The password for some of the areas is…..vista. A word to the wise, it would be a good idea to participate first in helping others before you think about posting your own work. After you have been around here for awhile, then post something of your own for help. Good luck.

@Cactus Wendy, have to say I love your name! And your question 'How do you like your popcorn?' seen it a few times now - hilarious! :D

P.S. For the record, I like mine swimming in buttery goodness ;)
