Gabriella | 5 comments Hi everyone,
I am currently looking for a critique partner or beta reader for a middle grade novel complete at 57k words.
In exchange, I would be happy to read manuscripts within most genres, though I would prefer books written with a similar age group in mind. Please note that I will not read romance or crime - sorry!
Looking forward to hearing from you,

James Johnson | 3 comments Hi Gabriella,
Are you still looking for a critique partner? I would be happy to swap. My manuscript is a completed and edited Middle Grade Fantasy/Adventure. It is a sort of coming of age story with a lot of fantasy elements.

The one hitch is that it's quite long at 99,000K. To be fair I wouldn't expect you to read it all. Maybe the first few parts which I think would equal about 50,000k. Please PM me if you are interested.

Gabriella | 5 comments Thanks for getting back to me! I’ve already done a few swaps and have decided to make some changes to my manuscript before doing any more.
If you’re both still interested in a month or two, I’d be happy to discuss the possibility of an exchange. Sorry I can’t be of more help at present!

David Wilson | 95 comments Hi Gabriella, are you still looking to swap? I have an 80K adventure fantasy aimed probably at the younger end of YA. Let me know if you are still interested.

Jill Campbell | 30 comments Hi Gabriella,
I have a YA culturally sensitive novel ready to swap that is about 70k words.
I am in the query tranches and would love sincere criticism and comments. Also, I give back line by line critique,

I am also looking for a critique partner or beta reader for my middle grade novel (43k words). Mine is an adventure story. If you are still looking for someone to swap with, I'd be interested.
