Meemee, you might find that you'll get more people interested in your book if you become active in the Share Your Work subforum, where you can critique other members' stories and have your own critiqued. Quite a few people will be reluctant to commit to reading a 75,000 word novel if they can't first look at and comment on the first chapter or so. That gives them the opportunity to see if the writing style etc will appeal to them, and it gives both the author and critiquer a chance to work together on a smaller piece and make sure they'll mesh as a beta team.

Also, just a teeny note that the blurb you posted above has eight or nine grammatical errors in it. That's another great thing about Share Your Work -- you can ask people to do line-edit critiques and find the little oopsies that always manage to creep into our text!
