A place to request in-depth reviews of your novel's opening chapter ONLY. Any genre/rating

The Rules

This place is only here for chapter ones —
not twos or threes or fours or all the lot.
Not prologues, nor the bits with smoking guns,
but just an introduction to your plot.

No essays, nor your splendid screen plays, please.
A steadfast “No!” to candid blogs and tweets;
I'd snooze through gossip columns' smears and sleaze,
or tales of stars your sibling often meets.

Forget your rubbish rhythmic rhyming verse;
this ain't the scene for awesome epic odes.
You would receive replies so tart and terse,
that I may stoop to shout, “You slimy toads.”

And lyrics merely serve to drive me loco,
for poetry is not my cup of cocoa.
