Hi Margot

Young adults. Wow can you recommend a critique group to me?

Thx.

Charm, congratulations on your book.  What age are you writing it for?

Are you in a good critique group?   I have been in my online crit group for years (11 books published now) and I could never have done it without their insights, feedback and support.

I'm currently writing a book and I'm on Chapter Seven...almost complete. My goal is to have it done by Christmas. It's sci-fi and it has a very interesting storyline. I can't wait until I'm done with it so I could start sending it to publishing companies.

Rachel if the quality of your rejections are improving, that means the quality of your writing is also improving.  I suspect you won't have to wait for 122 more rejections before you hit the jackpot.  Good luck, mate.

My daughter Stephanie has always had a love for writing, and I am so excited to announce that her first book is now available...You can get more information about her book and view her promo video on my blog. http://avirtuousheart.blogspot.com/2011/08/sooo-excited.htm

Thanks Karen...I guess I have 122 more rejections to go...it's actually harder sometimes to get a publisher's interest and then to be rejected...but at least it proves that the writing is worthy...my rejection letters have definitely improved over the years from standard form letters, to letters with comments.  I take what I can get!!!  A good rejection at least means someone took the time to critique it!  Thanks again for your words of encouragment....truly helpful.

Thanks a bunch Karen.  You are always so kind.  I hoped my link to a sample chapter from "Taconi and Claude"  ( a few posts below this), would give readers a feel for the fun and excitement of this outback Aussie adventure.

WOW!  Chicken soup for the Soul was rejected 144 times? That's what I call staying power.  Karen is right, Rachel.  Keep polishing and reworking that MS, and you WILL eventually find a publisher that loves it.  Rejections are a kinda way to pay your dues.  It's just some pay more than others.
