I came across your post in the "Noticing Newbies" forum and thought I'd check out your portfolio.🖐 WELCOME! I'm much more comfortable reviewing poetry, but since this item is the only one you have so far, I gave it a quick look. This isn't exactly a review of the body of your work, but there are a few important things that I noticed and feel will help you in the long run. Before I start, let me say that I am not a professional. This review is just a personal opinion that I am sharing with you. If anything in this review is deemed unhelpful, please discard. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me.
TITLE: Good. It tells the reader that this will be a personal story dealing with family.
COVER IMAGE: N/A
GENRES: Excellent! By making to sure to use all three genres you've widened your reading audience! From what I can tell, you've chosen well.
DESCRIPTION: This section could be better utilized. I don't know what TW stands for, but perhaps you could be a bit more clear. This is also a good place to note that the item is a draft or work-in-progress (WIP). You don't want a reader to base his/her review on a final edit if it's not. Also, the intro rating is Non-E. Items like this aren't advertised as much as E rated. As long as your title, description, and cover image aren't offensive, explicit, or generally inappropriate, you should stick with E to get a wider audience. When in doubt, just ask. (I've been here 17 years and still ask!) My final suggestion goes along with the first two. You want to get your material in the right hands. Technically this isn't a novel. You slid in at just under 8,000 words, not counting the top section, just the body itself. I'm really not being picky, but choosing the right item type will ensure it's read by the right people. Many of us have certain preferences when it comes to reviewing. I don't feel that I have enough experience to give an in-depth review of longer works, so I tend to avoid them. But some authors here actively seek novellas or novels. Although there are differing views, here's a bare-bones, rough guide to help- Most of the time, 500 words or less is considered Flash Fiction, 1000 to 8000- Short Story, 5000 to 10,000- Long Short Story (which isn't an option when creating an item on WDC), 10,000 to 40,000- Novella, and finally, more than 40,000 words are generally considered a Novel. Again, not trying to nit-pick, but sometimes the smallest things can change an outcome.
FINAL THOUGHTS: Keep doing what you're doing and turn your dreams into reality!
