Hello everyone! Sooo recently I’ve been on a reading new stories with not a lot of reads spree and I’m really enjoying so far. I think it’s great to give new authors a chance to have their stories known and get to know something to improve. I had a couple threads a while ago in which I reviewed stories for other people and I absolutely loved it so I want to do it again.
So leave your stories here! Include something unique about your story that makes people wanna click.
And a little message to everyone who leaves a reply: I think I, as well as other new authors, very much would appreciate a collaborative community where we could all give each other feedback on our stories, so we thank you for reading our stories and for leaving any constructive feedback.
Also, personally, I don’t like the “I’ll send you screenshots of your story and however many chapters you read of my story I’ll read of yours” deal. I think it’s really staged and I feel that if you like someones story (or don’t like) you shouldn’t feel obligated to only read a certain number of chapters (or any at all). We should all try to read at least the first chapter and if we really don’t want to continue after that we shouldn’t feel obligated to. May just be my own unpopular opinion, but that’s the reason I don’t want to do the screenshot thing. I used to, but I didn’t think it was a good way to find stories I actually enjoyed reading. If you guys want to do R4R with each other though, I completely support it!
I’d also really appreciate if you could give my own story some feedback which I haven’t really gotten. I’d like to know what people think and if there’s anything I could improve on as a relatively new author.
Here’s my story.
Author: Sarah S.
Description: After an accident rid her of memory, Gia Prince discovers a world of lies, love, and betrayal. A dangerous organization, an impossible attraction, and shrouded mysteries await.
Unique Thing: Starting at chapter 3 but mostly chapter 4, and beyond I begin to integrate an extended flashback with my characters.
So when you read my story, it’s like you’re reading two in one! A high school drama and a action/mystery!
NOTE: I’ve promoting my story like an insane person which I’m gonna stop doing so much because it just doesn’t feel right to me for some reason to be posting on every convo. It doesn’t feel genuine anymore. So sorry to anyone who’s seen me before, but I hope you’ll give this story a chance and I’m looking forward to reading some of your stories!
