Day 9: Item 3: First 30 Page Line Critique - YA Manuscript

The very sweet and awfully generous Riley Redgate is offering up a 
LINE Critique of the FIRST 30 Pages of a YA Manuscript

Trust me her posts are honest and her tone makes me want to get to know this girl even more!

From Riley:

"I'm a seventeen-year-old aspiring author, and I'm willing to give a line critique of the first thirty pages of your YA manuscript - any genre. If you haven't had a beta reader from your target audience yet, I'm your girl!

I'm great (read: picky) with grammar and dialogue, and if your novel is set in high school...well, I know a little something about high school. Not sure if your teenagers sound like teenagers? I'll let you know.

Along with the line edits, I'll include a 1-2 page summary of big-picture issues, if there are any."
