Escaping Ettanward

All Rights Reserved ©

Summary

Leo Grayson is having the worst month of his life. His five-year relationship ended in devastation, and he can't afford to live in Denver anymore. After scouring social media for places to rent, he receives a message from a stranger about a town in Oregon that will pay him to move there. When an envelope stuffed with hand-written directions, ten thousand dollars cash, and an odd-looking house key turns up in the post, what he thought was a scam leads him on a journey to the west coast for a better opportunity. Leo follows the directions in the letter and ends up in a town called Ettanward. However, there's something horribly wrong with the residents prowling the streets, and to make matters worse, every time he tries to leave, he ends up back where he started. As he stumbles through the unfamiliar and unbelievable, he makes new friends only to discover the nightmare and tragedy that grips not only them, but everyone else. What is his reason for being there, and how does he get out of this bizarre alternate reality before he falls victim to it?

Before reading

Please, for the love of all that is unholy, read this before you jump into the story.

I do my best to revise and proofread as I go with the draft, but there are bound to be typos and things I missed along the way. You don’t have to, but pointing out any mistakes or clarity issues helps me fix the problem for future readers.

What I am looking for in beta readers (if that's what you are here for):

After each chapter in the comments, let me know what you thought. How was the pacing? Did it seem slow? Was the chapter hard to follow? Were there any confusing sentences or concepts that you didn't feel were described in enough detail to understand? How was the voice and characterization? Were the characters interesting? Was the dialogue believable?

Was there enough of a hook to keep you interested? Were you compelled to keep reading or did the story fall short? If it did, what was the reason?

Triggers:

Violence and a bit of gore. I try to keep this to a minimum, but this is a story about werewolves, so it’s just a given it’s going to be here.

Sex. There will be sex, not a lot, but it will be there and it will be explicit. There will also be sexual situations and themes throughout. This will involve interspecies relationships (Werewolf/human/Half-humans). If that grosses you out, you should probably close this... now.

There will be attempted sexual assault, but I’m not into rape. So, while there might be indicators, no NC sex exists in this story.

There will be same sex male relationships. (this should be a given)

Keep in mind these are REAL werewolves (just a different spin on it), not shifters. They are really big wolves that stand on two feet. Think Van Helsing type werewolves. This is not Omegaverse, so if you’ve come here expecting MPREG, toxic masculinity, and everyone being categorized by annoying Greek letters, this isn’t your story.
