I Love the Holidays!--and looking for another CP

So people who are very busy are usually busy because they enjoy it. I'm busy and I enjoy it. This weekend is going to be so much fun. I get to spend time with a bunch of different friends...including attending a bachelorette party, ornament exchange party, cookie exchange party and my husband's work holiday party. I love the holidays.

Also, I'm on track with my writing goals so that's good.

I'm so excited for an excuse to bake Christmas cookies!

By the way, I'm looking for one more crit partner if any of you out there are interested (a normal reviewer is good to, but I'd rather have a partner so I feel like I'm giving back).

Prophecy's Promise is a fantasy novel written in first person.

Hailey, wildly hailed as the smartest mind of her time prepares to take her Scholar Exam and pass into the ranks of the Learned--the youngest to attempt this one-time make-or-break Rite in recorded history. A week before the Exam she has a prophetic dream. Now she must give up everything that she knows in order to help save all humanity from being consumed by their dying world. Problem is that she's spent her life training how to record history, not how to make it.

One thing Hailey will learn is that everyone--uncle, father, lover and friend-- is just out for themselves, even when it comes to the end of the world.


Let me know if this project sounds interesting to you and if you want to help me!

I like your premise but I am too swamped to crit now, but if you need another set of eyes after the holidays let me know.

Anthony said...

Me. Ooo Ooo, pick me! Pick me!

I have bandwidth. My WIP is not ready for eyeballs yet, but someday soon it will be.

It's YA Fantasy.

Your story idea sounds good, I would love to read more.

Wow, I think your premise sounds awesome! It gave me shivers!

I so much want to offer, but I am the slowest critiquer in the WORLD. We're talking... five or six months and I'm still not done. It's just, I hardly have time to read, you know?

And I really want to, it's just I have to write so much and I want to read so many things and blog and such...

*sigh*

Ooohh, I would love to crit! I really like the premise, it sounds like a book I would absolutely pick up should I find it in the store. I could send you my first draft of Twixt Light and Dark, if you want. Lemme know if you're interested. :) Also I love Christmas cookies.
