I'm looking to swap the first 50 pages of my manuscript with another YA Fantasy writer, even sci-fi. This is hopefully my last round of editing--as I've had my book re-written and beta read numerous times. My book is extremely diverse and follows an African American teen heroine in a YA FANTASY w/ specks of sci-fi. i'd say it's a bit of Shatter Me and X-Men meets Gossip Girl. I've been a copy editor various blogs and have beta read for YA genres like Contemporary and fantasy--sci-fi. Things I think are my strength in critiquing are character development, dialogue, pacing and narrative flow. I really like to help pull more emotion out of books! If you are the fun, insightful, sharp eyed and efficient critique partner I'm looking for please send me a message! I need you in my life.
If all goes well on the first 50 pages, maybe we can become long term critiquers!
