An entire chapter - and yes! I mean an entire chapter!

Because the first chapter of our novels are the ones that can get us in the door, this week I'm hoping one of you brave souls will send me yours, to critique here. I will post it in three parts (W,TH,F) with my comments. Let me know if there is anything specifi9c you want looked at. Oh, and you can be anonymous if you like - or not!

If I get more than one submission I'll do this again next month.

What say you?

ps don't forget that submitting gets you into the running to win this month's prize, HOLD ME CLOSER NECROMANCER.

aha, Donna totally beat me to the punch. grr ;D I'm participating in the hook, line, and sinker blogfest this motning, so most of my chapter is publicly posted for critiqueing. I guess I shouldn't be too greedy. (but I want this bad boy polished until it shines:)

I may just do this. Depends on time, though. Thanks for the offer!

I've got three submissions - more than enough for now - but if you guys like this idea I'll continue to do it cuz...you know me, I like critting :)

This is a great offer! Wow. I hope you do decide to keep doing it. :)

I'd also be keen to submit a chapter or snippet in the future. (^__^)

Jemi Fraser said...

Sounds intriguing - looking forward to reading more :)

Thank you everyone for your submissions! Very cool. If you guys really like this idea of a first chapter crit, email us and let us know. We could probably do it more often than once a month.

As it stands I've got enough for my week in march (I'll do 2 a week) and I've got one for April. Any takers for April's second slot?

Wow, how generous of you! Will make for interesting posts as you critique. :) Have fun!
