S.D. Robert (sdrobert) | 11 comments Hello,

I am looking for betas willing to read the first few chapters of my novel. The sample is six chapters long but any feedback would be greatly appreciated. :)

Here is the blurb :

Fourteen-year-old Thom November has no idea his family is entangled in the assassination of a famous wizard. That’s because he hardly knows them.

After his father stole money from a lot of people and ran away, his mother started losing her fight against her ruthless dementia. Raised by the staff at the airport where his legal guardian owns a café, Thom spends all his free time at the terminal. There, he watches planes take off wishing he could get his father home and fix the little of his mother that is left.

But it all changes when a mysterious traveller shows up. A peculiar accent, strange clothes, and the MO of a spy out of an old war, the man came for the Novembers and it’s about a gruesome murder.

Drawn to a magical but treacherous world deeply entwined with ours, Thom goes on a perilous journey and discovers there may be more to his family than meets the eye.


Thanks,

S.D. Robert (sdrobert) | 11 comments Thanks to you two for your interest and the quick and helpful feedback! :)

If somebody else reads through this thread, I just want to say that although my sample runs six chapters long, I won't mind if you only have time for the first couple few.
