Hi there,

I would like you to give me some review on my short story Donderion, the Storyteller. I know it is short but any advice would be appreciated.
Thanks!!

Sorry, it doesn't work that way. No one wants to be booted, I assume you either.

Sorry, but I won't be buying your book or reviewing it, not only as it's against the rules, but because at 99c for ten pages, it doesn't exactly represent value for money, which if my guess is correct, is what your potential customers are thinking.

Ten pages does not make a book. Frankly, I've got takeaway menus in a drawer that run longer than your story.

If you actually want some advice, and aren't just trying to scam sales and reviews from your post, why don't you bundle a selection of your stories together and sell them as a collection.

Potential customers will feel like they're getting more for their money, and if you're in Select, you may actually have a chance of attracting more readers. Once you've got them, if your stories are good enough (impossible to guess from the very brief excerpt in the LI), they'll read through the entire book, earning you more money.

Just my thoughts. J

I had a peek but as Julia says the Look Inside is so short it tells me nothing about the story. The book description doesn't intrigue me either, as didn't the cover.

My suggestion would be to write a full length book which if successful might generate a demand for related short stories. :)

Look at and take the advice given by the late Ray Bradbury on Youtube.

I'd be interested to see that. He was quite the storyteller.
