Looking for a Critique Partner Listings, August 3, 2012
Anyone else a little obsessed with the Olympics? I’m hooked on the gymnastics – a childhood dream. When I saw that there was a 37 year old in the competition it gave me hope. That’s like 65 in gymnast years!
Whether you’re watching the games or not, have a wonderful weekend. Here are the critique partner listings this week. As always, if I missed you, leave a comment with your requirements!

“So i’m very new to this but I’m looking for a CP who wants to share stories, ideas, plots, advice and anything else that might be needed!
Here is my rough synopsis for my novel:
What happens to us after we die? Does love truly survive death?
When Cadence met Lucas, it was the closest thing to love at first sight, if such a thing exists. When he tells her he’s terminally ill, it only makes their love stronger. They spend a year together before he dies.
It’s now two years later–Cadence has no interest in dating anyone. Though she’s past the initial loss, she’s haunted with memories of Lucas.
When Seth shows up in her life, she rejects his advances though he’s charming, witty and incredibly attractive. Just when she thinks she might be able to open her heart for someone else, she’s in a nearly fatal car accident. Surviving it was nothing short of a miracle.
Strange things have been happening to her and until the accident, she’d assumed the nightmares and the voices were all in her head. Now strange is turning to dangerous. Things Cadence didn’t believe in are proving to be true in unexpected ways.
She discovers the truth behind her car accident–the accident that was meant to kill her–and the sacrifice that was made to save her life.
If you’re interested, I’d love to hear from you! I don’t have much experience in critiquing but I’d love to make exchanges with someone!”

“Hello everyone! I joined this site because I’m about 32,000 words into my current science fiction WIP. I’ve allowed two of my friends to look it over. They think it’s great but I would like to get a critique from someone who doesn’t know me personally. I will, of course, return the favor. Please let me know if you’re interested. Thanks!”

Hello all! I’m brand new to this site. I’m currently working on my first novel, a paranormal romance. I’ve written 15,948 words so far. I’ve had two people read it and they’ve liked it, but I’m looking for somebody that writes to critique it. The story is about a Vampire named Sophie who decades ago , after her home was destroyed, moved from Royan, France to Deer Isle, Maine. She takes with her an infant human decendent to raise as her own in America. The setting is modern day. Sophie has many things to keep her busy, her human family, heading the Supernatural Council in her area, teaching Kindergarten, a family of Hunters and a sexy new Werewolf that has taken up residency in Deer Isle, Maine. If any of this sounds interesting to you, I would certainly welcome some help!
