  1. I have written a fantasy novel of about 77000 words. A short blurb:Valerie born in an orthodox Roman Catholic of a French Alpine farmer becomes a nun, pursues a pious life and when she comes to her farm on a holiday an adopted boy of her family rape her by blackmail in the absence of her parents. She conceives and has to abort her child secretly. Her sin leaked and the church excommunicates her. Ashamed, she goes to Paris without informing anyone and joins a hospital to work as a nurse; however, mysterious voices call her to go to New York to mitigate her sins.
    She comes to New York on her summer vacation alone and loses her way in Manhattan. She goes to a small park to rest where a tree starts speaking to her as if plant knows her well. The tree calls an old and weird woman who is a witch and she turns the park into a beautiful garden in which various flowers dance at her command. After the magical spectacle, a bushy, hairy man with black hair all over his body, feral looking and almost naked comes into the park and ogles at her hungrily. Dumbfounded but dogged she prolongs her stay in New York to solve the mystery.

    Will you like to read my manuscript of The Speaking Tree novel?

  2. Greetings staff,
