I am asking a favor. Please read and rate the excerpt from my Young Adult novel manuscript. The story follows a 15-year-old boy who acquires and struggles with type one. I have uploaded the excerpt onto http://www.longtalepress.com/, which is a site that publishes works based on reader feedback. I know that this is asking quite a bit, especially from someone who is not an overly active member. Simply, my life is hectic. I work three jobs, have two children and have one aspiration, to get published. Throw the everyday grind of life with type one in the mix and you understand how worn out I am. Therefore, please help me. The story is a good read for adults and Young adults. In fact, it has received praise from a local type one support group and the American Diabetes Association. No one, however, has been able to help me get published. That could change. Follow the link and search for THIS SIDE OF NORMAL. It is currently on the main page. I hope you enjoy, can relate and can help. Thanks.
