Hi Jill, thanks for your reply! I would be very happy to see a chapter or two when you're ready. Then you can see if you like the way I critique. I wouldn't expect you to commit without a trial run! You might have already seen it, but if not, my opening chapter is on my profile if you'd like to check what you think of the way I write. It's very much a work in progress! A few members of the Sci-Fi/Fantasy group have been giving me pointers, so I keep making changes to it.
I'm sadly not attending the festival on account of expensive home renovations. I'm dead jealous of those who are though!
