???

Re-sent. 

River, let me know if you did get yours either.

Ok, so maybe because I misspelled gmail. Ha, ha, ha! But seriously, I still didn't get it. Would it help if I send you an email? Let me know.

Thanks again!

YEAY! I just got it!

I know I'm coming into this a little late (I've been off QT for the past several weeks on a self-imposed editing exile) but I would LOVE to get in on this too! I live in Europe which makes it extremely difficult to find a crit group with English as a first language!

I've missed you all, BTW!!   :yes:

For now, everything is strictly voluntary.  You can choose what chapters to critique and how often, as well as how often to submit chapters for critiquing.  This is to keep people from forcing themselves to suffer through a genre that's of no interest of them, just to fill an artificial quota.

Bodwen, thanks for getting back to me. If you all still have room, I'd love to help.   :)

Such great people hopping in. I just did my first crit (Bodwen's awesome swashbuckling adventure). Love the ease of the forum. Thanks Bodwen!

@bodwen -- thanks so much for setting this up and for adding me -- got the invitation!  :up:

@River -- no worries, chiquita!! I'm used to having my names misspelled  :wink: Thanks, BTW -- it's great to be back with my tribe!

I am crazy busy on edits for my book's sequel which is due out in the fall, so please pardon me if I'm not highly engaged right away. After I get the edits finished, I will have more time to submit sample chapters from my WIP and also offer critique to all you wonderful writers!

Looking forward to being a part of something special!!!  :clap: Yay!

Your post started this group! I love stories for young kids, promise to read and comment (and I can give it to my daughter if 10 is not too old)

Thank you to everyone who has asked to join!  If you've given me your email and have not yet received an invitation, let me know and I'll send you another.

For anyone who is interested in joining, let me know.  The main requirement is that you have to be serious about producing print-ready fiction, which is probably why you are on QT in the first place.  We've got a really good line up of writers already, but the more the merrier.  With a broad selection of genres, people won't feel left out.
