Hi!
The title is what it is. Check it out. It's free! And if you did, it'd be nice for a review, but it's not required. Thanks ever so much for checking it out, and have a great day! Here is the link: http://a.co/fwq7K2r

This is not the place to promote your book that seems not to be selling.
Your blurb needs drastic help and looking at the Look Inside, you have some errors to fix.

I don't think the cover will attract the age group you've set, and your blurb would have more impact without the last sentence. The Look Inside seemed to have some formatting problems, but that may just be the Look Inside. At first glance, the text seemed a little too didactic, but, then, I'm obviously not in your demographic. I'll take a closer look at it tomorrow. If this is your one-and-only book, offering it free is not a good marketing move -- if someone likes it, where can they turn except to another author? Good luck with your book. Looks interesting. --REV

There she will learn how to squeeze chickens to control her strength,
HAHA! This made me laugh. The image I have in my head now... HAHA!!

For some reason the G has a space after it in the Look Inside. So the first word reads G ina.

Oh farther in there seem to be formatting inconsistencies (indents not going as deep as others.)

I like your sense of humor. I wish you well!

When people post on here asking for feedback or post links to their books, I rarely bother clicking anymore because most of the time they have a poor command of the English language and have uploaded badly-formatted, incomprehensible junk littered with typos. And that's just the native English speakers.

I took a brief look at your book and have to say I'm impressed. I love the premise of a "monster school" and what little I read of the LI was well-written and engaging. I'm a big kid at heart and read plenty of children's and YA fiction, and this looks right up my street. As well as the gap between the G and the i at the beginning mentioned above, the only constructive criticism I would add is to change the cover to a more professional-looking one (better quality artwork, etc). Congratulations on publishing and best of luck with your book.

Thanks for your input! It is so helpful! We think it's only the Look Inside that has that error because the E-Book doesn't have it. We don't know what happened with the Look Inside. And, no, this is our first book, but we already have a sequel called Watch for Falling Rocks. Thanks again! You've been most helpful! Have a great day!

Thanks for your comments! We appreciate it very much! We don't know what's up with the Look Inside, because it seems the actual E-Book doesn't have the same errors. Again thanks for your help!

Thanks for your help! Yeah, the cover is about as amateur as you can get, because we just don't have any experience in that area. Thanks again! You've been a great help!

I like the cover; it grabs your attention and fits in with the book's ethos. In fact I like the book so I bought it . . .

I wanna buy it too but it's free which makes me feel guilty. Why is this book free? You'll earn no money having it in KU if it's also free because why suck up a slot when you can outright buy it?

Hi,
The e-book is free, but there is still the physical copy and the audio book available for sale, so if you would feel too guilty getting it free, then you can buy it that way. Just click on this link if you'd like: http://a.co/eXhXr8c
But don't feel bad about taking a free e-book. It's all a part of getting people noticing our books and hopefully liking them as well and then reading the sequel which is called Watch for Falling Rocks and then the subsequent books as well. Thanks so much!

Really!!! I am glad the OP has a good book - but this is not the place to peddle it and we are not the buying public - wish we did not encourage people to disregard the guidelines. Think of the bad books people will now feel justified in promoting to us on the forum when they see it works.

If you look and want to buy - keep it to yourself. B
