“I’m curious as a cat, that’s why my friends call me Whiskers”

If you guys remember that Saturday Night Live skit from Will Ferrell and Jeff Goldblum…awesome! If not, watch it here before reading this post. No, it’s not insightful, or even necessary for you to watch before continuing on. It’s just that’s it’s so freakin’ funny and I weep for those who haven’t laughed their pants off watching it.

Done? Ok.

So, as I said…I’m ever curious, always researching and because of this kitty cat characteristic (say that five times fast) I have stumbled upon yet another beneficial writer’s site.

Beth Revis, author of Across the Universe, has a Reddit hangout, YA writers, and I go there from time to time, check out what peeps are asking, offer my opinion, and leave. But today, a post is up and it offers authors an opportunity that I feel is extremely important, manuscript critiques!

But it’s not just any critique site, it’s operated by YA authors! How awesome is that!? They have a website that offers services for manuscript critique, editing services, and query development.

It’s super important to make sure you have all your ducks in a row before submitting to an agent, and this site is your one-stop-shop for doing just that, (gah what a cliché…apologies) and you know the quality of work is Grade A, prime cut, FDA approved, wait! I’m pretty sure I’m wrong about that one, you get my drift. These gals know their bizz and any author wanting to perfect their manuscript before submission would do their work a great service by at least checking it out.
