Hi Samantha! I’m looking for a critique partner also! I’m writing a middle grade novel, though mine isn’t adventure/fantasy. This isn’t a problem for me if it’s not for you. If you’d like to send an email to my regular email - koontzink@gmail.com, I’d be glad to send you a snippet and we can see if we want to work together. I’m about nine chapters into a second draft, btw. I look forward to hearing from you. Rita

Hi, Samantha. I’m interested, if you’re still looking for a crit partner. I’m working on an MG fantasy, too. I’d summarize it as: When a young musician acquires a magical violin of enormous power that seems to be draw deadly trouble, he soon finds his own survival, and that of his world, may turn on figuring out how it came to be enchanted — or accursed.
I’ve finished and revised a 73,000-word draft, but am happy to talk about work, swap critiques, etc., at any stage.
