Good tips my other half has a very short attention span so starts my stuff and then gives in. My mum was always my proof reader for university. I haven’t been brave enough to share my stuff with her yet. I think she would love it but she is an avid reader of so many great authors it’s a hard bunch to compete with.
I have looked at the site you mentioned and it looked like something I will use in the future. Didn’t realise it was free, it just became more attractive.
I have written two novels but have not got to the publishing stage yet, although I have had some interest in one of my books. I am presently expanding the manuscript for it to send back.
Thank you for your support
