    Odd, I tried to buy a copy (since it's listed as being free) and got this message:

    Dunno why I got this. I sell books in UK, AU...

    Oh, look, someone reviewed your book. What a coincidence!

    Liked the story, loved the way your narrator spoke with a whole Conan the Barbarian kind of voice. It had an authentic feel to it. But you really need to get it edited to clean up a lot of the simple mistakes. You should read it aloud and you will pick up the grammatical errors.

    For formatting, I'd make a new cover. is a great place to buy really solid artwork for only about $7 a pic. Change the font too (you can buy custom fonts as well.) Interior formatting: If you are using MSWORD, under paragraph formatting there is a checkbox for "Don't add space between paragraphs of the same style". You wanna check that box so your text fits together without gaps.

    Last critique: dump the epilogue. You don't need it, you told the story just fine without it. I really did like the story and the old-timey way that your narrator talked. I could imagine her running around in deerskins and dirt. It was easy to imagine the world she lived in.

    Oh, one more thing: Last page of the story is where you add a link for people to review your book.
