Alright people, here is the downloadable copy for the free edition of my story Fear To Live For. It has been finished on Wattpad as well.

Fear to Live For (PTS Edition) by Ayush Srivastava

Summary:

Andrew Jonah Peters has lived his entire life making choices. Whether it was choosing which candy to buy or to choose which parent to live with after their divorce, he has always found himself at the crossroads, unsure of what he really wants. Then, one day, while exploring the scenic waterfall of his hometown as a six year old, he found his answer to his biggest dilemma: Through fear.
Ever since a stranger told him about his method of choosing, Jonah has always put himself in a controlled life-threatening situation to realize what he wants. But when he loses control in a dangerous situation that exposes his secret and makes him an outcast in the society, Andrew faces the biggest choice he ever made: To live through fear or to accept death's embrace.

I would like to have some reviews in return. Thank you.
[EDIT] Uploaded the corrected copy.

Hey folks, I have been working for a cover of 'Fear To Live For' and though the end result so far might not be eye-candy, I can't really come up with corrections. Would you folks mind helping out with suggestions?

Hello Ayush,

Are you aiming for creepy or beauty?

The blurb feels like angst/dark, so I think the cover is all right. I just would like the dark colors to be more Sharp.
But it's only IMO I don't read usually this type, so maybe someone more into it can be more accurate...

It looks fine to me, except that it needs to be a bit sharper. 
Please excuse any spelling errors.   I have dyslexic fingers!

The concept of the story in one line: After public condemnation on exposure of his secret addiction, Andrew Jonah Peters has to choose between choosing to live on or just give up.

And here is the cover modified as per your suggestions. Is this more preferable?

Yes sweetie, of course I read the concept, but sometimes it's misleading, but  It looks like you are not the type to mislead your readers :)

 I like it better. Don't you?
 Lets see if others have another opinion...

Fear To Live For

Author: Ayush Srivastava

Release Date: 20.1.2015

Summary:
It's all about making the right choice.

Andrew Jonah Peters has spent all his life making choices. Some of them as trivial as which candy to buy while some of them as life-changing as choosing which parent to live with after their divorce. Every moment has been filled with the fear of losing oneself because of the bad choices. Of regretting not taking what the heart desired for. And then came 'he'.

In one encounter with 'him', Andrew was forever changed. There was a way to figure out his heart's desire: through fear. And so started the fall into the addiction of the thrill. The thrill of planning. The thrill of anticipation. The thrill of a successful execution. But there must always be a price. The addiction grows all-consuming within him.

And when the secret he hides behind his 'normal teenager' life is exposed to the world, everything changes. Nothing is the same and Andrew has to face it all with the addiction demanding satisfaction as well. And so in the darkest moments of his life, a question arises from within: Should I live in this harsh world or should I escape into the soothing death?
