Today, I did something exciting and a little bit scary. I hung my shingle and declared myself available as a "crit partner for hire." After making announcements on Facebook and Twitter, and through the ACFW e-Loop, I've already completed one free sample critique, which was very well-received. =)
I'm excited at this new scenery on my road to publication and wanted to share it with ya'll. All this week I'm offering free one-page critiques. I know I need to prove myself to all my fellow authors and I'm eager to do it.
Do YOU want a free critique? Please let me have a crack at it, no obligation. Are you polishing up that all-important First Page, or getting your project ready to pitch? Want help diving into deeper POV? I'm your gal.
If you're willing to let me take a peek, attach and send your one page in a Word doc to michelle_massaro at hotmail dot com. In the body of the email, please tell me the genre and time period. Fiction only. No Speculative or Sci-Fi, sorry! But supernatural elements are fine.
Let me end with a question today...have you ever paid for a critique and if so what was your experience like? Anything you want to share about critiques--partnerships, groups, paid--is welcome in the comments of this post. I want to hear from you!
