Book Critics Needed

1 post in this topic

Hi all

Seasonal greetings.

In my spare time I write and have had both short stories and biographical essays published.

Recently a female friend asked me to try to capture her amazing story with a view to publication.

Her story is both tragic and uplifting.

She married at 22 and stayed married for 29 years to a man who was a vile bully and (probably) latently homosexual. The marriage was never consummated.

Eventually she had an affair and finally lost her virginity at the age of 52.

Whilst we are both happy that I have embraced her story in terms of the physical and mental abuse, a key chapter focuses on the night she had sex for the very first time.

The subject of this chapter was, of course, alien to me so if any site users are prepared to give us honest feedback on the chapter that would be hugely appreciated.

Full blown lit crit is not needed, just how you felt it read and whether I succeeded in capturing her giddy excitement, fear and liberating outcome.

I will PM the chapter in PDF form
