Critique Partners

Critique Partners are invaluable and awesome! I have two CP's at the moment, and they have both become such good friends.

A great site to find CP's or Beta Readers is Agent Query Connect. Join today! It's free and I promise you, you won't regret it. AQC has several forums full of wonderful people and helpful advice. Finding trusted Critiqe Partners is extremely important before beginning the query process. I don't know where I'd be without mine. Thank you ladies!

It's stressful at first. You're entrusting all your hard work to a complete stranger. Everyone goes through it, you're not alone in what you're feeling right now. Sharing personal email addresses is how my CP/friends and I connected. We share our work with one another and help to the best of our abilities, whether it's suggesting eliminating unnecessary words, changing how a particular scene plays out, or pointing out grammar and punctuation errors. Also support and praise for a job well done! Soon you find yourself emailing just to say hi, have a great day! You're sharing everyday events, rejection letters, requests... Before you know it, a friendship blossoms and that's the greatest thing about the invaluable critique partners!
