Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to review. You are the only person so far to pick out the elements you highlighted and that delights me no end. I am looking for ways to improve, but I'm happy that specifics are identified as good.

I have never had an answer to any queries sent via the site's 'contact us' page. I have not received a review now for four weeks, despite reviewing others on a regular basis. I wish this site would either get its act together or close.

I've been reviewing but haven't had a review back for a good four weeks.
Reasonable vs Unreasonable Editing Requests (by a Publisher)
 19 Feb 2018, 11:50 Post #237278

First off, any and all contracts are negotiable. People forget this. They think that if a contract is offered, they have to either accept or reject it. Not so. You should always negotiate your contract so that, hopefully, it includes the things you need covered. Always get a lawyer to look over your contract. That way you avoid signing up for something you don't agree to.

Secondly, no editor worth their salt will ask you to rewrite to such an extent that it changes the story completely. For the most part the experience will be very positive, with back and forth between you and the editor, discussing issues as they arise. It will cover grammatical errors, continuity, and, if you have agreed to it, some story development.

My editor for my book Some Strange Scent of Death was professional, accurate, helpful and a lovely person.
this site needs an update, badly.

I've been a member for a long time, and I've watched youwriteon slowly fall into disrepair and, frankly, malingering. High time whoever pays for the domain name and the hosting either stops and shuts it down completely, or recognises that it needs and injection of serious management and does something to rectify all the problems.

The premise is still good. It still has a robust review process, albeit, I've now waited, Lord I don't know how long, for a review, despite reviewing others on a regular basis. However, the forum is hardly ever up and it's full of spam. Writers I speak to outside this site say it's pointless. Oh, and who are the editors giving their 'professional reviews'? No surnames. No checking possible on who they work for an in what capacity.

I know, I know, just another moan about this bloody site. It won't do any good. I send emails on the 'contact us' form, but no one has ever replied. This is doubtless because it just goes into some poor volunteer's spam folder. It's pathetic. Why should we trust anything any of the 'professional reviewers' say?

Many thanks for the review Lyndsey. I appreciate your careful reading and considered points, and I am glad you found some merit in my story.
Good luck with your own writing. Stuart

Many thanks for the review Maria. I am glad you liked my story. I have never seen 'The Gilmore Girls', I’ll have to give it a look and check out the receptionist.
Thanks again and good luck with your own writing. Stuart.

Does anyone else have trouble reaching the message board. Most often I get an error problem. I probably won't be able to read your reply because I usually can't get on here.

You have to log out and log back in when it comes up with an error messages. Weird, I know, but it works.
Happy writing!

The Stories so Far
4 in the top 10?
 12 Feb 2018, 11:18 Post #237257

Today the top ten and, in fact, all places thereafter, has disappeared completely. There's nothing in the top ten, or top 20, or 30 or 40 or 50. Nothing. Nada. Zero.

You may be onto something there, but would it be a selling point?

Hi - thanks for the review. I'm glad Postcards has you intrigued - whether the hints at identity swap or theft are true or not, whether this is the main mystery or more a red herring. Postcards is the first novel I saw through from go to whoa and I'm still pleased with it. It's a light, fun and easy read in the nonexistent 'Male chicklit- mystery-science fiction-romance' genre. I've learnt that some readers have trouble accommodating all those genres in one package, especially folk who aren't much into Science Fiction. However, all these elements have been introduced in the first few chapters you've read, so expect it to continue in a light vein until the sting in the tail. If you have difficulty locating it on Kindle, do a search there on George Adams Postcards. I'm confident you'll enjoy the rest of the story and would love a review on FaceBook page 'You Read On', so message me there when you've finished or on my email address which I've got on YouWriteOn. Cheers! Alf Fry, writing as George Adams in this instance.
