I've been working on writing a book for the best few months now. I've finished 127 pages in word. I hope to publish it. What do you guys think? It's a space fantasy book, based in the deep depths of space. Includes aliens, guns, space ships as big as earth, even bigger, huge balls of doom, and a few references. No Earth exists in this story, so you know it's good.

I think it's a run of the mill space book since I've don't have any idea how good at writing you may or may not be. Don't post the thing online or you'll have incredible trouble getting a conventional publisher to touch it.

I'm fairly good. My strong point from what I see from my writing is plot and suspense. :p A little hint, in the middle of suspense, I drop that, and go to a different character/more boring scene, like they do in movies, to keep you interested. IDK, but I think it'll work out!

Just about 1-2 pages at the most. That way we get a picture, and could give you a few hints.

Exactly, there is no way we can form an opinion on your work unless we read at least a short excerpt. ;)

This actually makes me somewhat skeptical, as it seems to be your generic run of the mill sci fi. On top of that you haven't told us a word about the specific genre.

Is it epic sci fi, military, social, something else entirely?
