Are you looking for a critique partner (CP) or beta reader for your New Adult manuscript? You're in luck! We have a bulletin board on Tumblr, just for this type of thing. ;) Here's how it works:

If you use Tumblr:
  • Head over to our bulletin board.
  • Browse through the current listings.
  • If any catch your eye, go ahead and contact that person as instructed.
  • If not, you can directly submit your posting to the board.
  • That's it! Either you'll hear from someone, or you can keep checking the new posts.

If you don't use Tumblr:
  • Head over to our bulletin board.
  • Browse through the current listings.
  • If any catch your eye, go ahead and contact that person as instructed.
  • If not, you can email us with your posting. We'll update the board once a month.
  • That's it! Either you'll hear from someone, or you can keep checking the new posts.


Either way, you must follow this format for your posting be approved:
