    First of all, please know I'm aware how strange this sounds, but I promise it's a legitimate request and I really am an author.

    My name is Anne Riley, and I live in Alabama, USA. I've got one novel published and another contract in the works for 2015. Recently I've begun outlining a story that takes place in Aberyswyth, specifically in and around the university.

    (If you're wondering why I chose Aber, it's because I used to date a guy who went to school there, so I've visited the town a few times--but not since 2003!)

    I'm looking for someone who can give me information only a student would know. Which bars are best and what reputations they have; what the lecture halls / classrooms look like; and other interesting things like that MASSIVE hill somewhere near campus that everyone takes taxis up because it's so miserable to walk.

    The whole process could probably be done via Skype, Facetime, or email. It wouldn't be terribly demanding and you'd be thanked in the acknowledgments. I may be able to offer some other small compensation for your time as well.

    If you'd like to check my story, please feel free to do so at www.annerileybooks.com.

    Thank you!
