Alright, fellow writers/readers, I need your help.
My editors have had to step back due to other life commitments, and I am in need of help! I write mostly YA high fantasy & urban fantasy, most of my characters are LGBTQ+ and/or POC, and there’s almost always magic involved. (Similar to: Six of Crows by Leigh Bardugo, A Darker Shade of Magic by Victoria Schwab, Ace of Shades by Amanda Foody) I can’t offer anything other than my undying gratitude, but would love to be able to exchange works if you’re a writer, as well. I’m not looking for grammar or sentence structure edits, just general world-building, if things make sense, character development, the big picture kind of stuff, etc.. If you’re interested in either reading and/or exchanging, please let me know! I’m currently in the middle of querying for one of my novels, but it’s part of a series, and only the first novel has been read through and edited by someone that’s not me.
I’d also 100% be interested in forming/joining a writing group. I both really need someone to read my work, and I also really, really miss being able to talk about writing with people who also love words an inordinate amount.
If you’re curious about my writing, I talk about it in the mary writes tag on here. If you’re curious about the specific novels I’m working on right now, this is the tag for it. (That’s what I’m currently working on, but I have a few other novels in the wings that will be finished soon and that I’d love to be able to get feedback on, as well, if interested.) If you’re curious about my style, the only thing currently accessible online is my fanfiction and the earliest draft of the opening chapter of my current novel.
If this sounds appealing to you, please drop a comment below!
