Books blurb:

I love a demon!!! That was has hard to write as it is to think. But it is not true, I love a wonderful, sweet, caring, loving man that happens to share a body with a demon. Iím not sure if I should be scared, terrified, disgusted, or just happy. I know one thing for sure, I can no more deny how I feel about him, then I could deny what he is. I just hope that it will turn out for the best and Iím not making the biggest mistake of my life. But he has my heart and that above all else, is all that matters at this point.

Hello, jjworthington, and welcome to AW :hi:
In case you hadn't seen it yet, take a look around the Newbie Giude (http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=66315)to help familiarize yourself with the Cooler. There's lots of helpful folks here who are happy to help.

You may not get a beta right away, but I hope that doesn't discourage you from participating in the community here. Once you have 50 posts under your belt you're given the opportunity to post in the Share Your Work sections of the board (SYW), which is where many people find willing beta readers.

It's nothing personal, sometime people aren't ready to make the commitment to read for someone unknown to the community yet. (It is nice that you offered to trade mss!)

Anyway, glad you found us! Your book looks interesting and I wish you the best of luck with it!
