IWSG ~ So Insecure
I went to bed thinking about my as yet unwritten IWSG post and woke up thinking about it.
Have you ever had something you were insecure about, but you were SO INSECURE about it that you really didn't want to think about it or write about it????
What am I talking about??? In this case, I am blathering about Critique Partners. I really need them. I asked for anyone who was interested to send me an email. That netted one email. Thanks Genissa! But, I really need a couple more and I find myself terrified to just step out here and ask... again. Not because you will read my "baby" and find flaws. I know that there are flaws, which is why I need you!
I am insecure because I don't think you will even WANT to read it. In fact, I have already come up with plenty of reasons why you won't want to do it (so I really shouldn't ask). I could list those reasons, but I am trying to keep this short(er).
My novel is written as the first in a series. It is a Paranormal Mystery with a dash of Romance on the side. In this case, "Paranormal" means my MC receives a vision every time she touches something with an emotional fingerprint.
Now, if you only read Science Fiction or Horror or something like that, here is is your Permission Slip. You have just been let off the hook. My book has NONE of that. If you think Paranormal requires vampires, werewolves, witches and all that stuff... another Permission Slip. I have none. If you are still thinking, "This could be me," well OKAY! If you need a CP, send me an email and we can talk about it. I do think the arrangement can, and should, be mutually beneficial. My email is rarichards68 at gmail dot com:)
