Virtual Critique Group

Critiques when you need them!

I've never had much success with writing groups. Too many people, not enough time to do a proper job of it, too many broad subject ranges, HAVING to present something to the group, ready or not. Just never really worked for me.
But what if we had a place where we could request critiques as we need them and volunteer to critique for others as they need?

Please introduce yourself and tell us what areas you're interested in critiquing, and when you need something read, look through the group and see who's interested in your subject matter!

I know we're all busy, but if we all make a little time here and there to help each other, we'll all benefit from it. If you have other friends in She Writes who would be interested in participating, please invite them to join!

Denise Baer, I can look at chapters of your novel. At the moment I'm waiting for my beta's to finish - so I have some free time.

Hello Everyone,

My name is Denise Baer and I'm currently working on my 3rd draft of my women's fiction novel, Fogged Up Fairy Tale, and some short stories. I'm looking for a critique partner once I begin my 4th draft, which will be sometime in April. I'm also looking for a critique partner regarding my short stories.

Novel Blurb:

Brand Rye’s life has come to a halt. She’s lost everything—even her memory. After spending time in the hospital, Brand returns home to a husband she doesn’t remember, and a life that has disappeared overnight. Her husband, Easton, provides Brand with bits and pieces of her past while she tries to put it all together.

As Brand learns about her life, she begins to realize that she isn’t the person she hopes to be... or is she?

Alcohol and loss are what brought Easton and Brand together. Once out of rehab, Easton offered Brand a place to stay for a price. With nothing left to lose but her sarcasm, Brand took him up on his offer, which began a whirlwind of adventure, sexual tension and their fairy tale of love.

Is Brand’s second chance too late? Or will she be able to cope with the secrets as they’re revealed?

If you're interested, please contact me at

Have a great day!

I can review your YA novel, if you still need it :-)

Hi, Ruth,

My novel is 88,000 words long, and I would love to have reviews by March-April.

Here is the blurb for the novel:

Fifteen-year-old Ever is blind. Only able to see what her boyfriend, Fox, looks at, which is most often herself. But sometimes it’s also the muscled men who kidnapped Ever and Fox, and sometimes it’s an unused mall in New York City where the two teens are locked up until they’ll come into the paranormal gifts for which they were stolen. Having spent years in this mall, Ever is ready to do anything to escape.

Not so with Fox. Yes, he longs to escape too, but there’s one thing that he values above his freedom. It’s Ever’s love. Still, when the two get a chance to escape, they take it, only to discover that this chance is so dark and twisted that it just might destroy Ever’s love for Fox.

Thank you.

Will you tell us how long your novel is and by when you would want the reviews?


Comment by Elena Patrick on February 13, 2014 at 2:13pm

Hi, Everyone,

I plan to self-publish my novel and am looking for reviewers. Would anyone be interested in reading a YA paranormal romance? I will gladly review your book in return.

Looking for a critique partner for my new adult erotica suspense novel. About 1/3 finished.

I'm really interested in working with this group!  What is the best way to get started?  

Comment by Elisabeth Kinsey on November 25, 2013 at 11:35am

Hi Heyna - are you pitching your stuff now?  Long time no see. I have finished the memoir...for better or for worse.

Comment by Victoria Adams on November 24, 2013 at 8:42pm

Actually - it varies. I've ready numbers 16 - 23 - so as long as you are in the ball park then it's the right age group.
