Re: Non-LitRPG review Swap

Wow. Dare I use this subject as thread name here on RR ? :-)

Anyway, with too much writing going on, and still having to do some chapter C4C's (if you're on the list you WILL get that critique, no matter how long it takes!) I decided to bite the bullet, pick up the gauntlet, and offer a REVIEW swap.

Please read this whole message. It will save you and me some time :-)

Requirements:

- So, no LitRPG (ouch), no horror, no porn, no fan-fiction
- Okayish grammarwise, normal, readable stuff. You know, like a book :-) 
- I want to peek at your story first, and please don't be angry if I won't review it.
- Also, I'll give you the honest review per PM first.
- If I cannot or don't want to review your story I'll tell you per PM as well.

How to make sure I won't read your story:

- Poor paragraphing and unreadable dialogue (unable to figure out who says or does what)
- Confusing point of view changes (I'm stupid)
- Inconsistent first / third person, inconsistend preset / past tense
- Writing in Sanskrit, Swahili, or Braille
- Anything involving Dumbledore x Hagrid, or BTS werewolves

What I have to offer:

- 50k (70k by now?) of contemporary teen urban fantasy
- Think a little 'Buffy' or 'Warrior Nun' if you're looking for a TV analogy
- There's another 20k words in draft, not yet published
- The main character is a girl who travels with her mom (a substitute teacher) to yet another town. Turns out things are not quite as they seem, especially when it comes to her own past.

Notes:

- I'm NOT a native English speaker, but it shouldn't be too bad
- It's in first person present tense, some people absolutely hate it, so I mention it upfront
- Chapters are fairly short, ranging from 500 to 2500 words (but there are lots of 'm)
- Please check out a random chapter before you reply, so you know what you're getting into
- I'm perfectly happy to start somewhere in the middle if you can provide me with a summary up to that point (just PM me).
- And yeah, it's perfectly fine if you do the same with my story (I'll provide you with a summary up to that point, just PM me).
- Tell me if you want to swap, starting from which page / chapter, and how many words.

Again, please check out a random chapter before you reply, so you know what you're getting into!
Proof it. Mention the chapter.

So... who hurts me first?

Oh, no, I already did that. I assumed that you were asking for something else.


I always look at chapters before I agree to a review. If I didn’t like it, I’d never have posted in the thread. If anything, the way you wrote it confused me.

But whatever lol nevermind then.
