Just to give you a little information about myself, I have never written a book before but decided I would like to give it a go.
I've always enjoyed reading/writing etc but strangely, the thought to put pen to paper never once crossed my mind. (Even now I type as I'm writing this.)
I believe it to fall within the comic fantasy/satire/young adult genre.
After having just cleared the 10,000 word mark, I decided to ask my long suffering family for their opinions. They all thought it was fantastic of course.
However, as their opinions are of no interest to me (kidding) I decided to submit the first 3 chapters to a couple of publishers who said yes yes yes, they want to read more.
Out of vanity, I now find myself in a situation whereas I need to write more as I'm hoping to approach a larger publishing house with the help of a literary agent.
I need somebody with a love for writing and love of the English language to help me.
I have the storyline ready and have written most of the ideas for the book already so I know which direction I'm headed.
My main problem is fleshing out the book, bu this I mean adding in all the other little bits like extra descriptions so my characters have more presence unlike a character from 'The Sims' as an example.
Spelling and grammar are not necessarily my forte either and I tend to write quickly and in a way that is sometimes complicated to read.
If this sounds like a project you'd be interested in working with me on, then please get in touch with me.
This is open to absolutely anybody, professional experience isn't essential at all, just the love of good subtle humor and a good level of English. Age is completely unimportant.
Payment will be in the form of royalties if the book becomes published and you will be fully credited.
The option of self-publishing is also available as a last resort.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and would be happy to send the first few chapters or synopsis.
