CP Needed for quirky supernatural book
« on: February 08, 2014, 04:43:06 PM »
I'm querying my first novel and not getting any requests, just form rejection letters.  It was suggested that I look for a critique partner.  I'm willing to read their work and critique in exchange for critiquing mine.  The story is a YA, comedy, about a vampire cat.  It's 104,000 words.  Maybe I need help.   :crazy:  I need to know what is wrong or what I'm doing wrong with the manuscript or query process.

Still looking for anyone that would want to help as a beta.  I'm willing to read their stuff in return.  :emb:

I might be able to take a look at it. Have you posted the 1st chapter or any pages thus far?

Hi Julia,

I read the first chapter this morning and have some ideas/suggestions. Would you prefer the critique written under the first chapter posted or emailed you? Your email address is set to private in your profile.

Hi Julia,
I have the same thing going on.  I have a 109,000 page new-adult supernatural novel in the query process. Have sent out 30, got 10 form rejections and 1 request for a full mss.  I have not posted my first chapter in forum, but got great feedback on my q letter and synopsis.  Would gladly read yours and critique in exchange for same!  :yes:

Thanks,
Julie

I'd be happy to critique someone's novel if they need it! In exchange, I'll send mine over, and we can trade :D
