Icon4 anyone care to read?


I was wondering if i send an excerpt / preface if you could look over it and tell me if my book is worth attempting to publish its based on my life but altered into a fictitious world where demons devils and mythical creatures are responsible for all the wrongs in the world where a young man gets involved with dark magic trying to contact his mother from across the veil and gets wrapped up with a rouge demon king "Abaddon" and the price for his help is for him to inhabit his body and hunt down those responsible for his kingdom being over thrown. The young man gains the dark abilities of the demon king but has a few surprising abilities of his own that were roused and empowered with the demon kings powers.

It's a great idea but you need to work on your technical ability, punctuation, syntax, grammar. Because no matter how good an idea you have, publishers and the public are looking for excellent writing.

I hope this helps.

is this a script or a book, it makes a difference where it's posted, but we would be happy to help.

publishers recommended book length is around 480, 200 is too short.

can't say about the pages but I look to put just over a 100,000 words per book.
