Hello, I am looking for someone to swap critiques for the first chapter (hoping to get this as polished as possible).
I would like any and all thoughts you have for the first chapter. And I am willing to do a general critique or keep an eye out for anything specific you may want.
I tend to prefer YA, sci-fi, fantasy, and horror... but am willing to read anything (especially for a 1st chapter only swap).
Below is a quick pitch (query is still in progress). Thanks.
THE SLEEPING AND THE DEAD is a young adult science fiction novel with horror elements. Mira, a sixteen-year-old thief, is recruited for an off-planet scientific study but when the other patients begin falling into comas and acting out their murderous nightmares she must find a way to escape the deep space laboratory before she becomes one of the sleeping or the dead.
