krissyj511 – WOMEN’S FICTION / CHICK LIT
I’m in the process of doing the 2nd big revision of my novel and I need one more person to read and critique it. Check out my bio and if you’re interested, please let me know.
At this point, I don’t have a ton of time to devote to critiquing anyone’s novel (I have 1 partner already and a 2 year old and we’re moving in 3 weeks, so life is beyond hectic). But I’d be glad to return the favor come September.

“I’m looking for a few critique ninjas interested in building a long-term partnership. Along with critique, I’m happy to bounce ideas around, work through plot issues, character development, world building, etc. Basically, anything and everything, with the end goal being publication.
I’m currently seeking feedback for my WIP, Where There Is Dark, set in a world ravaged by darkness. Here’s the quick blurb:
Devastated when her father is murdered by rebels, seventeen-year-old Jazzlyn taps into her ruthless side in order to avenge his death, but her fear trumps hatred when the same group takes her boyfriend hostage and demands a trade, Tristan’s life in exchange for a rare Lumenian light-stone located in the one place the rebels cannot travel.
Surviving on little more than mushrooms and hope, Creperians languish beneath black clouds that divide them from those who thrive within Lumen’s City of Light. Jazzlyn’s knows her immunity to the Star’s deadly rays makes her the only person who can retrieve the stone and keep Tristan from sharing her father’s fate. She doesn’t know her trip above the clouds will begin unraveling the secret behind Creperi’s perpetual darkness and that everyone—Tristan included—has something hide.
If interested in swapping stories, I’m thinking a chapter a week, maybe? My email is firstname.lastname@example.org and I’d love to hear from you!”
elmason – ROMANCE
“Looking for love… just kidding! Looking for a critique partner!
I’m currently working on a new Contemporary Romance. I think I’ve started something pretty interesting, which includes a sassy heroin and a lovable, yet possesive man. Contains, love, laughs and lot of intense passion. I a few chapters in and could use a little insight. If you are interested in helping me out, I’d love to hear from you!”
Marianne – MYSTERY
“I am looking for someone to critique the sequal to my debut novel. It is also a supernatural mystery. Thanks.
carolynbrown - ROMANCE, PARANORMAL
“I have only just joined this site and am looking for a long term critique partner who would enjoy reading steamy love scenes, with vampires and other paranormal creatures. (Not erotica) but some scenes in my stories have descriptions which would be unsuitable to a younger age group.
I have self-published my first novel (54,000 words) in a series and have almost completed writing my second story (60,000 words) and am looking for interested partners to critique this new work. I would be happy to critique your work in an exchange.
I work in the education industry and have experience editing student work. I have also critiqued other writer’s work previously, so I have some experience.”
