About Me: Looking to break out of the slush pile. SWAPS: PLEASE GO FIRST. I'm only interested in swapping with those who want genuine feedback. I leave long and detailed reviews, and I would expect the same from you. Please leave specific comments because if I can't tell from review if you've read the book I won't return the swap. Looking to swap for Lock Stock and Two Smoking Goblins at the moment. PLEASE NO POETRY I might do free reads if I'm in the mood or you ask me in the right way :) I'll also give you a detailed review in return for a short positive comment on Amazon etc if you buy my book. ---------------------------------------------------------------- Follow my facebook page for book updates and creepy inspirations

Hello R.A. Black.

You said in my post that I was using Passive Voice and telling. What exactly is passive voice? and also do you mean telling and not showing? (for that reason the story is narration from the 17th century man's pov, but the story does have three pov narrations from three characters, but the main one is the heroine/protagonist). Or in what ways was this telling?

Thank you so much for doing the author chat for us. The FFG can't thank you enough! Is there anything we can do for you in return?

Hi R.A.! I wanted to know if you would like to swap? So far i have one chapter (finished) of my new WIP, "Casting Shadows" and I was wondering if you'd review it for me? I'll definitely take a look at Lock Stock and Two Smoking Goblins, and review it if you agree :)
