Looking to Critique

I'm currently writing...

I have two books on the go

One is high fantasy. The gods are waking and the divine right to rule no longer belongs to Lien’s brother, the King, . Lien is serving his mandatory military service with the hopes of being forgotten about, but when the goddess chooses him to rule, her decision is final.

But his brother is a good King and the secrets he can see are the only reason why the much larger country over their mountainous border is being kept there. When political alliances fall and the gods conspire to drive Adan mad, Lien has to decide when, not if, he is going to have to lead the revolt against the brother he loves.

My other book is about kinky vampires.

More About Me

I love the techniques behind how to write well. I am not the critiquer for someone who just wants their commas in a row.

I really read for character development and conflict and tension so much so that I usually don’t do initial line critiques. Since becoming a writer, I’ve probably read as much unpublished fiction as published fiction and I’m really good at finding what the tragic flaw of the book is and how to fix it.
