View Full Version : Anyone want to read (a different) fantasy novel for free?

02-23-2012, 09:03 PM
I have just written, last November, a fantasy novel. (which Pedersen helped me salvage from a works format that I emailed to myself!)

It's Nano, yes. And let me say, it will be more than a little bad, because I have only edited part of it. I had edited more, but the "more edited" version was tanked when Al's last computer died.

It involves Dracula, and Merlin, and lots of magic, and an incubus. The basic plot is that the incubus haunts the women of Nimue's descendants, hoping to get one of their bodies so it can join the living again in a sufficiently magically powerful body. Nimue befriends the youngest descendant, and leads her to someone who can help...Dracula.

Basically, what I'd like is for someone to read it, and give me an opinion on it. IE whether it's a solid idea or not. I definitely planned it out better than the previous Nanos.

Little editing tips (IE I wrote that someone's hair was red in one place and black in another), things I might have missed, etc, would be nice too.

Also, please note that this book was meant to be the first in a series. (to explain the ending)

Of course you have leave to simply enjoy it too. Or not enjoy it as the case may be.

I have a PDF, to make it easier on people with readers.

(Sorry to joitheartist for taking the title of your thread :( )

I'm not finished with Joi's book as I have been sick. But I would love to read another one as well. I will pm my email address.

I will of course. I'll pm you my email address..but keep in mind I am not very critical, and taking grammar and spelling notes from me is a bad idea :p.

I'm pretty good on spelling. Not so much on grammar. It's okay. :p

Heading to email it to you guys now.

I'll pm you mine as well

I'll give it a shot, but as I warned Joi

#1) I will give a more critical eye to grammar and spelling than to plot

#2) If I can't get into it, I won't finish it.

If that's alright, I'll PM my e-mail.:)

I would, but I am currently proofreading a book on monsters...if I remember, I will PM you to grab your once I have finished!

I will private message you my address, if you don't mind. My family has been on me to write a book based on my life. I just have no idea where to start, maybe you could point me in the right direction?

Just finished reading the story. In fact, I had to read it from beginning to end..couldn't put it aside. Loved it. I do have one major complaint..it will be too long before I get to FINISH the story. Looking forward to the next part of it, won't come to soon.
