Critiquers sought

Announcement: I will be using lemonlyelit for a new novel-in-progress. Similar deal to before: please head over if you want to help critique! I only ask that you not be quite so nice as people were for RELATIVELY HONEST--you have to try to find things that need improvement. If you were there for RELATIVELY HONEST and aren't interested in getting the new novel chapters, it's completely okay to defriend. No one owes me anything! You were all extremely wonderful.

Anyone new and not yet "friended" on that LJ may simply comment to be added.

The new story is called HEAVEN OR CALIFORNIA, and is an 81,000-word modern fantasy.

Snappy book jacket synopsis: A young angel defies orders by trying to catch a killer, and finds himself stranded on Earth in the process. Passing as a high school student, he takes refuge with the murder victim's family in a small California town. But his identity as an angel, his growing love for certain humans, and his pursuit of the killer leave him in a conflicted tangle that he must resolve before anyone else gets killed (or fails to find a date to Homecoming).

It will amuse you! It will intrigue you! It will rip out your heart like an Aztec torturer!

First few sample chapters will be posted on lemonlyelit soon. Questions...?

(Cross-posting here and there.)

Woo! Can't wait to read! And I will attempt to be merciless and cross when I'm not being all fangirly and planning exactly how to tell people I knew you when.

It's a deal. And I get to tell everyone I knew you back before you were Empress of the Universe!

Unfortunately it's probably a better line than anything in the actual novel...but welcome, anyhow. :)

Brutal honesty, that's me!

Good, 'cause flattery will only get me so far. ;)

I'll offer my tuppence worth, if you add me. :)

Done. Looking forward to the tuppence!

Absolutely. I'm really doing this just to say that I got to read the bestseller before anyone else, but I'd love to be a part of your process.

*grin* That's the spirit. Well, I can dream, anyway. You've been added to lemonlyelit; head on over there for the text. Thank you!
