Seeking critique partner for urban fantasy

Hi, there! I'm seeking a critique partner for my urban fantasy manuscript. The intended audience is adults and it is not a romance (although there might be a love story). Here's a one-line pitch: A young magical inspector is grounded in Baltimore as punishment, where he gets wrapped up with an enter...

Re: Rave about your Significant Other, Friends, or Family!

So glad we have such supportive people in our lives! I usually chat up my twin sister when I need some plotting advice, or just a good pep talk. We're both constantly juggling multiple creative projects and try to help each other out as best we can! Yay! :D

Re: One more chapter to go...

I just read through this thread and have found it immensely helpful. I'm working on the closing scenes of an urban fantasy right now and this has definitely given me a lot to think about. Since I had the book handy, I just re-read the final scenes in the first Harry Potter book to consider how the e...

Re: Oh Crap Breast Cancer

bcomet -- I'm very sorry to hear about your illness. I only just started posting here, so we don't know each other, but I wanted to send you my kind thoughts and happy wishes. Also, if there is a fundraiser or auction coming up, I'd be willing to donate some items. I'm more of a crafter than an arti...

Re: Writing rituals

Oh, and I usually forget my tea or coffee (depending on my mood) so I have to go make it now. And I mean literally, I have to go make myself some tea now. (Pet the cat.) Ha! I seriously forgot to mention all the time I spend petting the cats! I also forgot that I started making myself a cup of tea ...

Re: Writing rituals

Oh, man. I can procrastinate on the internet like it's my business. Twitter, Facebook, email, Google+, RSS feeds, blogs, reddit, forums, webcomics, and yes, even fanfiction. When I'm well-behaved, I can keep it to a minimum. Sometimes I'm able to tune out of the internet for days and instead get suc...

Re: How Price-Conscious Are You When Buying Books?

For me, it depends on the book. If it's a book I'm not sure about, I definitely pay attention to the price. This mostly applies to non-fiction and high-brow, "literary" fiction. I'll often try to get those from the library or used online because I am not sure whether I'll want to finish them. But wi...
