Do you want to read a free novella?
If your answer is yes to these questions, then I have something for you.
For the last few months, I’ve been writing a novella called The Butcher of Barclay’s Hollow. Set in England in 1855, it follows the story of Patrick Conroy, a butcher who has reluctantly been assigned the role of village policeman, as he’s called on to solve the unexplained death of a retired vicar. But, with the whole village set against him and waiting for him to fail, the unlikely policeman is forced to solve the case with little more than his own intuition and the help of a young girl.
I am on the look out for Beta readers to give me feedback (good or bad) on the story. So, if you’re interested in what you’ve read so far, and would be up for reading a story for free, then click here to be sent to Inkitt (where the story is currently being hosted) and send me your comments via Inkitt, Facebook, Twitter or through this contact form.
At 30,000 words (or thirteen chapters if you prefer), it is not a long story, but I’m sure you will find it a fascinating read nonetheless. I’m looking for a wide-range of viewpoints so, if you are interested in a free read, let me know what you think…
