First, I'd like to announce that I was interviewed over at Rachel Simon's blog, and it will be posted today (I think). Go check it out!
I would like to announce that Draft 4 of Jane's Air is finally complete! Huzzah! Let the townsfolk rejoice!
And, although it is still far from perfection, I'm looking for betas to read it and give me feedback.
Or, if you want to be called a critique partner or the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, I guess I could call you that, too.
Jane's Air is a YA historical fiction finished at roughly 57,000 words. Well, I think it's a historical fiction. It's not paranormal, or romance, or dystopian... lit maybe? *shrug*
Anywho, here's the hook I'm working with right now: "When Jane Hawkes accidentally kills an Indian, she thinks it will bring her death as well."
I must warn you (um, potential betas) that some of the material is darker than the way I write on my blog. Like murder and almost-rape darker. But, these things don't fill the pages of my book. It's also a romance. I just want to warn you now, so I don't get ticked off emails.
I'm looking for betas that (preferably) have experience in beta-ing, and maybe are writing a YA book of their own. I'd be happy to read anything in return. And, if you aren't interested in reading my book, maybe you could point me in the direction of a good crit group. Kewl?
If you're interested, leave me a comment. If you want to be a beta but I don't respond to your offer, PLEASE don't take it personally.
