Title: Critique partner or beta reader wanted - historical suspense
Post by: FayeDC on September 24, 2019, 12:50:47 PM
Hi,

I'm looking for feedback on my historical suspense with romantic elements, set in rural Quebec during the Great Depression. I'm mainly looking for general comments on plot, pacing, whether you're engaged with the characters, etc. There are some dark themes in the book and I'd also appreciate feedback on whether any of it is too much (I can provide a detailed trigger warning if you wish). I have a query letter posted on the forums if you want to take a look and tell me if the novel sounds interesting to you. You're also welcome to start with sample chapters before you commit.

I'm not sensitive and I prefer feedback brutally honest.

I'm willing to swap if you have a WIP to beta, now or at a later date. I'll read about any genre as long as there's no vampires or religious stuff.

Hi,

If this is still relevant, I'd be happy to swap sample chapters, and see how things go from there.  My ms is YA fantasy (possibly high fantasy, that point is being debated in the review of my query letter in the query forum.  Feel free to check it out, it's under GIFT - YA Fantasy.

Feel free to pass if fantasy is not something you'd be interested in reading.  I myself will read pretty much anything, and I looked over your query, would be happy to read yours.
