First Impressions Announcement

As most of you know author Dianne Salerni and I have been teaming up the last few years to bring you First Impressions, whereby we critique your first page. Starting in June, First Impressions will be even better, because now your first page will get three critiques instead of two. Krystalyn Drown, author of Legasea, Spirit World, and Tracy Tam Santa Command, will be adding her opinion to the mix, and let me tell you, she's an awesome critiquer (I know, that's not a real word - but it should be!) and Dianne and I are thrilled that she's joining us.

As it stands, we still have one slot open for June, so if you'd like to have your first page critiqued by three awesome authors, just send it to any one of us ( my email address is marcy@tidewater.net) with First Impressions as the subject. A page is usually 300-400 words and we will happily link to your blog, website, twitter, whatever. We also like to have a pic (of you or something appropriate to your submission) that you have the rights to.

Interested? I hope so, cuz we love to crit!


See you Friday with more fun pics from The Ringley Museum...

  8. That's exciting news. Three critiques! You two helped make my first page better both times I submitted it. I'll submit again when I feel like it's closer to "done."

    Thank you for all that you guys do!

  12. You, Dianne, and now Krystalyn are the most generous authors I know. Critting is hard, and you do such a great job pointing out what's good and bad.

    I see you're reading Peter Hamilton's Great North Road. I loved it! It was such an exciting mystery in space. Enjoy!

  13. You are all so kind and giving of your time - I'm sure many, many writers have appreciated and benefited from your critiques, and there'll be many more to come!
