Writing Buddy/Beta for Urban Fantasy/Romance Novel

Hello there,

I'm currently about halfway through my first Urban Fantasy novel, with romantic elements, and am looking for someone who'd be willing to swap crits with me... maybe chapter by chapter? Or whatever. Just as long as the person would be willing to stick with me for my entire book, and I'll do vice versa.

Please PM me if you're interested. Thanks!

~Jaz

EDIT: I'm still looking for a beta. I've got one person who actually swapped chapters with me, but it didn't work out so well. I really do need someone, so let me know if you're interested!

I'm interested. I have no material to send as of today, but I'll beta yours, and when I have chapters done I'll send them. Just send me a private message I suppose.

It's fantasy with a little romance, my novel is intended as.

Sounds good! I've sent a PM back, but still looking as I don't have anything concrete, so feel free to post if you're interested, people!

If you're willing to read SF, I'm willing to try a chapter swap with you to see how it goes.
