On the hunt for beta readers/critique buddies

Postby rcthebanditqueen » Fri Aug 29, 2014 3:59 pm

Hey all,

I have a short novel draft of about 30,000 words, and a shorter (11,000-ish words) story, for which I would really like to find some critique-ers if possible. I am game to do the same for anyone else who needs a critique partner.

(I wasn't sure exactly how to compose this type of post, so I just sort of made a stab at it...)

Any takers? :sofa

Hi Rachel,

It would be helpful if you could state your genre and a brief summary of what your fiction stories are about.
I am interested, having been a sub-editor for four years, but I don't want to commit if it outside if my areas of interest.

Blessings.

Both are in the Western genre. I say 'in the Western genre' instead of 'Western' to differentiate them from the many modern Westerns which I have tried to read and which are trashy (sexual content, off-putting language, horror-level gore, etc.). I don't like writing trash. (But there are different definitions of what is trash.)

One is about two brothers who get lost in the desert and stumble onto a ranching operation that covers up a bunch of underhanded deals, and one is about a has-been lawyer whose friend digs him out of retirement to defend a wrongly accused prisoner.
