Alexis Leder | 11 comments I am polishing my most recent draft of my YA fairytale retelling. I am seeking someone(s) who is willing to read the 85,000 word novel (of course, I respect your time and do not expect you to have it all done overnight.) This person should also be able to tell me about plot and believability. Also, if you have a good eye for grammar and sentence structure, I will love you 100% more!
Here is a synopsis:

Briar Rose, known famously as the Sleeping Beauty, knows that there is no such thing as happily-ever-afters. She hides the truth from her people that true love's kiss never really woke her from her sleep. So when an anonymous letter hints that Rose's power-obsessed prince is being held captive in a neighboring kingdom he tried to conquer, she is the only one who thinks that the message is more than a hoax. Unexpectedly coupled with Odette, the black sheep of the stable hands, and Ella, a servant girl impossibly indebted to her stepfamily, Rose determines she must lose her tiara to go on the journey to save her prince although he had never saved her.

Are you interested in a swap?
I have a 73,000-word adult fantasy. It does have some mature scenes.
You can send me an email if interested :)
