Hi guys--I hope you don't mind me asking, but I could sure use a teensy bit of help! I've written a prologue for my current Middle Grade novel, and I need to know what the reader understands from it.
I don't want to say more than that, and I'm sorry to be cryptic, but I would hugely appreciate a few people who would be willing to give it a read (it's a single scene, just over 800 words) and tell me their impression. I need to know if it's confusing or not. So, just a reader's first impression, that's it!
If you have a few minutes to take a quick read today or tonight, just mail me and I'll fire it off to you. If you don't have time, no worries. I know we're all busy and not everyone can do such a quick, last minute request.
Thanks so much!
EDITED TO ADD: Holy Bananas! In the time it took me to rustle up some food for the kiddies, a ton of emails came in. So THANK YOU ALL, and I'll email everyone ASAP.
I should have enough feedback now, so I'll CLOSE this request for feedback. Thanks to everyone who responded. You guys are great!
