Deception Point

“Paul Jutra’s life is about to become a living hell, the problem is, Paul doesn’t remember. Doesn’t remember much of anything, prior to waking up in a hospital bed with a raging headache.”

The prologue of this novel, which I’m about to start work on (well, this winter at least) is now up for review on my writing website, HERE!

I would appreciate any feedback anyone would care to give, even if it’s just to tell me you spotted a spelling mistake. And if anyone would like to be a BETA reader for me, let me know.

This novel started out with a tongue-twisting title I’ve now since abandoned, and who wouldn’t, it was awful: THE DIOSCURI STRATAGEM is now DECEPTION POINT — yes, even though that title has already been used by another, eh, more famous author.

I decided that Deception Point was a better fit. It was, in fact, one of the original titles I’d chosen, but abandoned after doing an online search. I mean, no one really wants to have the same title as another author, especially if that title and or certain someone else is a lot more famous than you. But, the more I thought about it, the more I wanted Deception Point, and so, here we are. I’ve renamed my WIP back to what I wanted.

Oh, and FYI, as for the word “dioscuri” check this out. It might give you a clue about what I’m writing about. What, no?

    Alexandra, I read the prologue on your writing blog but was unable to leave a comment, so I’m posting it here. I wouldn’t mind being a beta reader for you, especially if you post brief excerpts like your prologue. My limited free time would keep me from committing to reviewing & commenting on anything much longer than that in a given day.

    Well, heck. I’m unable to paste my comments here. If you’re interested, please email me, and I’ll send them to you that way.

      Oh, I’m sorry about that Denny. I will have to go take a look. How annoying for you, and thank you for taking the time to comment here, and let me know.

      I would love to have you as a Beta Reader. That would be great. Thank you! That’s very generous of you. You would only be getting one chapter at a time, given that’s how I write. But yes, feedback over on the website would be just as easy. I’ll let you know my email address by using (I hope you have one) contact form. And we can take it from there.
