Need Constructive Feedback Readers

If you're friends with me on Facebook you know that I've finished my first non-gay mystery novel and am in the process of editing it. At this point I need some readers to give me some perspective on the thing. Specifically, I need readers who are willing to jot down notes as they read it, e.g., if a passage doesn't work for you, if it does; if a part confuses you; you solved the mystery too soon or the mystery made no sense; you like or dislike a character; your general impressions of how the book compares to other mysteries if you happen to read the genre. Stuff like that. Not looking for line edits at this point unless you feel like it. I'm mostly looking to see how the story reads.

If you're interested, please email me at and I'll send you half of the manuscript. Those who take the time to write out their comments and opinions will receive the second half.

This is an important project to me. I'm planning on submitting a package to agents, so please only reply if you're also serious about helping me out. Thanks so much.

edit: thanks to those who responded. I'll be contacting you after New Year's :)

Hide and Seek
I really really hope he gets his ability back. Heh, on the reverse side, I wonder if it is possible to turn an 'normal' into a psypath? :) I can't imagine the trauma that would happen if all of a sudden a non-talented human found themselves saddled with an ability. ^.^V

Got them!
I finally did it! I got some of the books! I'll have to wait for next time to get the rest, but in the mean time I'll enjoy the one I have. Will you still be posting stories to your site? I really enjoy them a lot.

The biggest part is I got the Pirate stories! Now I can see how it ends. Thank you for finishing it! ^.^V
