View Full Version : YA Paranormal Swap

04-27-2011, 06:53 AM
I'm looking for someone to give me an in-depth crit of my 65k YA Paranormal/Mystery. In return, I'll give you an in-depth crit.

To me, 'in-depth' is everything from line-by-line notes regarding sentence structure, awkward phrasing, and fluidity to big picture issues like character arc, pacing, and plot clarity. I'm pubbed short story writer, a forum Mod on two sites, dependable, dedicated, and hard working. I expect to be able to crit your entire ms in under 2 months (depending on how long it is) and would like the same. I expect the draft to be relatively polished, e.g. no grammar or spelling errors.

If you're interested, please write a brief email about yourself, attach your first five pages and a sample crit (in doc), and send to: laura_6eg (at) yahoo.com

Despite the terseness of this post, I'm diplomatic in my crits and easy to get along with. No, really. I am...

G'day, I'm interested in swapping WIPs. Feel free to pm me for my email address (for reasons of casual paranoia I'll ask to see your first 5 pages first). I'm a thorough critter too, so I like to get a sample of something before I commit to it.

I'm delighted with the response I've gotten. My dance card is full now, and I can't take on any new partners. Thank you all very much! :-)
