    Hello

    Hi everyone,

    I'm from Edinburgh (the one in Scotland), I write urbanish fantasy and I'm the mother of two small boys.

    I've been enjoying the Share Your Work area of the forums -- learning lots about how to write the perfect query (I hope).

    So, having seen those critiques, I just need to say: I'm not afraid of you.*


    (*may not be true).

    Take some time and read the Newbie Guide and the Stickies found
    at the top of Forum pages. They are your best guide to learning about
    Absolute Write.


    Please read the FAQ about posting photos.


    In fact we have lots of brilliant FAQs check them out.


    Members who want to start a thread in Share Your Work to have work critiqued need
    50 posts. Don’t make a mad dash to reach your 50 posts. Take some time to greet fellow newbies,
    critique other members’ works, or join a discussion.
