CONGRATULATIONS BULLFROG!!!! ex[bounce]

I'm sorry I've been away for awhile and just saw your announcement.

I'm not surprised either and I wish you the best of luck on making the next cut. I think one way or another your novel will be published.

So when I went to read the preview I only got to read the first 2 paragraphs. Are people able to read more on there somewhere. Seems like I'm missing something. That's why I only wrote about the very short preview. Hmmmmmmmmmmmm? Cuz it sounds like those other people who wrote reviews got to read several chapters and I couldn't on the kindle

I told my wife about it and she downloaded it to her Kindle. I believe she said the downoad contains what appeared to her to be the first chapter.

The excerpt is all that is on Kindle right now. They picked the first 1,000 by the pitch. Then the 250 were chosen by the excerpt, the first 5,000 words, not quite all of the first two chapters. That is whats on Kindle and all thats there for now. They are now reading the entire manuscript and the next round will be determined by that. Thanks for all of the support.

I was getting the same thing, just two paragraphs, but I was choosing the "Free Sample" button. You have to choose "Buy now" even though it's free. You will get a return reciept in the mail showing you bought it for $0.00 but you get to read the entire excerpt.

My son asked me a question about the sequel. He asked if it was strong enough to stand on it's own if you hadn't read the first book and wanted to follow these characters. He liked the action where Yon Zack comes in but the second book just lacks the action of the first.

I appreciate his honesty and I'm going to go back and redo the entire thing. It's good that I have 59,000 words done already because once I go back and add more action it will be adequate to be considered a novel as far as word count goes. A novel must have at least 50,0000 - 150,000 words.

So, once they rescue the grandson they will be in dire straits as every available ship is sent to return him, more sea battles and swordplay will make it much better.
