For this month's IWSG I am WSCPB (Writer seeking Crit Partner/Beta)
Is it just me or are most of my bloggy friends YA? Yes, some of you are sci fi, romance, fantasy...but YA seems to be a really BIG group! I feel like me and my thriller aren't a desired match for betas/cps. I have also noticed that many of you already have your comfortable match ups. I have had a couple of great experiences, but they were more like one night stands - not sure if I'm supposed to call the next day (ha ha). I know for my book to succeed I need more eyes on it and I am willing to trade services. How do I go about getting and keeping a CP/Beta?!
Falling for Fiction is awesome for beta/cp mixers - but again, mostly YA (and I tried, but was rejected...boo hoo)
Rach Writes also did a cp match up - no matches for me...
And perfect timing, Miss Snark offered her services to help match up cps on Monday and will display the info on Wednesday! I put my name in for some of that action. We'll see if I get any takers.
And if any of y'all are looking, here is my current sitch:
- ready to query my thriller POP TRAVEL, would like final crit of ms and query
- starting a new fantasy MG with the August Camp Nano so that wouldn't be ready for crits until the fall
- I read/write sci fi, fantasy, thriller, not so much romance, no horror
- I work well with deadlines and am willing to trade MS, chapters, query letters at any pace and at any depth of crit level
