I am new to writing paranormal. I write YA fiction with a paranormal/mystery twist. I would love if someone could read a scene from my novel and let me know if Im heading in the right direction with the writing. Any help and suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

**Thanks Aaron for the suggestion.

You might want to go back and edit the title of this thread, so that people know what it is you need. "Hi" doesn't give most people a reason to check this out, since it sounds like an introduction thread. You may get more action, that way.

I'd help, but I've got deadlines I'm working against, and so no free time. Good luck!

Currently writing in the same genre and would like to help. Let me know if you want me read it.

Kristina, given that thread got a lot old, you might want to follow up directly with luvs2rite through a personal message.
