Also please tell me, if you’re okay with me posting the feedback under this thread or if you’d rather receive a PM.

I will review the first episode and give you feedback about reader experience.
The feedback will include:

  • Overall reading experience
    Did I enjoy the story?
    Would I recommend it/continue reading?

  • Plot
    Well planned?
    Intruguing/interesting?
    Development

I was unable to review yours, since you’re revamping it atm…

Hey there! Sorry but this thread was meant for new authors only. I want to give people feedback on what they can improve, as the most are unexperienced.
Good luck with your story though! :tulip:

Hello there!
I’m a new episode author and I saw your forum.

Sorry for my self promotion, I’d like to take my chance if I can. ;;

I would like to recommend the very first episode story I made and I published it just now. I’m a sucker of Rom Com, Drama, Comedy, and Fantasy. This book is the first book of three that I am planning to continue and hoping it would go well. It’s also an LGBT and Mafia themed (as the story goes, these facts regarding with the protagonist will be revealed). I included my own artworks as art scenes and tried my best with the point system. Hopefully you give my story a chance! :slightly_smiling_face:

Author Name: EpisodeAnon27
Description: You’re known as a tyrant to everyone except for your family. After dying from an accident, an angel told you might have a chance in heaven. Are you taking the gamble? LGBTQ/LL/CC.

This is really helpful even for someone like me who started writing over a year ago :smiling_face_with_three_hearts:

For everyone who struggles with character development I made a post on Instagram and I also have a character sheet in my google drive which you can download and use. You can find the link in bio on Instagram @annaw.stories :smile:
