OK, so I'm wondering if it's too late for me join this most awesome of awesome group of groups? Sorry, I don't come over to this side of the forums very often. If it's too late I totally understand, but if you still have room I'd love to be a part of it all. Here's my address:

Hey BeethovenFan (you shall hereforth be known as BF)

Err...largely not too much of an issue for me, I think I can probably squeeze in another critique during the week, but obviously It'll depend on if the other guys have the time as well. My only problem would be if there's a real genre schism, mainly because I read a lot of SF/F so I know the tropes and expectations of the genre pretty well. If I were to try and critique a romance novel I'd be next to useless. Are you planning on offering up a fantasy novel?

Tis a fantasy indeed! But... it's got romance too. It's sort of Harry Potter meets Jane Austen. Kind of. Ish.
Anyway, if there's room. Totally understand. :)

I'm cool with it. I'm still in the middle of moving and taking care of psycho car stuff, but I should be in the Black Hills (my end destination) on Saturday and then things will be a bit more like normal.

Well depending on what the others think you could join in now. I personally don't have a major issue as long as the genre's don't clash to badly....

It might get rough if we have too many more people join, but I can totally vouch for Cookie. :D

Well I'm thinking a group of 5 at 1000 a week would probably be the upper limit for me - obviously this is a democracy though...=0)

I agree, 5 is good, absolutely no more than 6. That's already a lot of critiquing.

I agree as well. I'm well as it is and one more (only) will still be great ;)

Fair do's then...

...so Unless Sheila has any major reservations we can pretty much agree to welcome you on board...=0)

And agree on no more unless someone drops out.
