I’ve finished the rewrites for the first Portal book, and you can now read the initial draft of Oakbrook Portal on Wattpad. The entire novel is there, and I’d love to hear what you think. I have also entered the manuscript into the Watty’s competition.
There’s a new cover, the title has changed, and may change again – I’m still pondering that.
You can read Oakbrook Portal on Wattpad, while the original version is here. The original is still available through Amazon, but I’m planning on trying to remove all versions before seeing the new one published. I am also submitting the new version to publishers before I think about self publishing again.
Initial feedback suggests the new version is stronger, richer, somehow – which was my aim! Large chunks of the original story have been cut. The character ensemble has been trimmed. The result is a story rich in character, with better flow of action, and more magic.
So, I hope you’ll read the story, comment, vote, and let me know what you think. I have never been easily offended, and all feedback is welcome. My only proviso is that I ask you to please keep your comments civil and constructive. Oh, and I reserve the right to only make use of the comments I feel will work for my story.
Click away, read on, and enjoy. I’ll carry on working on the next book while I wait for your reactions.
