Hi. I’ve just finished my first romance ms–contemporary category romance. (Several others in various states of dilapidation–maybe I’ll go back to them some day.) I’m a high school teacher and spent a number of years as a reporter and then a newspaper editor, so critiquing in one form or another is something I’m very familiar with. I’m looking for someone to give me a reality check on the big picture elements of this book–pacing, characterization, believability, etc.
