This contains a synopsis and excerpt to each of the books in The Sunset Trilogy. The first book was released in August 2015 and the second one in February 2016. Both can be found on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other online booksellers. I hope you enjoy the teasers here :)

This is well done; however I feel there was not enough information in the excerpt to make me understand what was going on here. I would need a bit more information. Also a deeper trip into your main character's thoughts would be great as well. Aside from this, I can tell you write very well. I'm glad it's been published. That's amazing! Great job.

I really felt drawn to read the book. Your descriptions were okay, but try to add more to set a better scene. I was confused as to who Dakota was, but that actually fueled my interest. You did a great job reeling me in.

I think you've got grounds for a great story! I hope you continue it. My one piece of advice would be to try less "normal" descriptions... Think crazy! Describe what you/ the characters actually see, even if it sounds weird. I hope that helps. Good luck! -Liora

The synopsis is nice, the only thing that bothered me was that the paragraph about Noah was inserted in the middle of the synopsis talking about how things are unfolding. I would consider moving the section with Noah as her everyday life is described, then clump together Xander and the lost boy.

The excerpt is interesting, but it doesn't particular draw me in. It doesn't give enough information for me to understand what is going on with the story or anything to understand the characters, all though it is well-written.

I think the story may be something I would like, I would just need a little more to read before deciding.

I like what you've done with this novel preview. I definitely would like to read more.

The synopsis in general has a lot going on, and each separate idea is a little bit scattered. I would try to add some transitioning sentences to sew them all into one piece. (Ex: "But the boy's disappearance was only the beginning." --I would add something just before that to wrap that and the sentence before it together a little better.) I've always hated writing synopsizes, especially for novels, because they all have so much going on.

As for the excerpt, is this the start of the novel or from a later chapter? If it's from the start, that's quite a bold move. It's gripping and intriguing. I'd love to hear some of the backstory later on, too. I know it's an excerpt and you don't want to give much away before publishing, so I don't see it as an issue, but I'd love to see where you'll take this!
