As authors, one of the things we get more than anything else is criticism. We send our baby books to betas and CPs (which literally stands for Critique Partner), and we enter contests just for the chance at agent feedback, racking up query rejections and a whole lotta nope! try agains in the meantime – taking the bad with the good is our way of life.
But what if it didn’t have to be the only way we receive feedback?
Now, don’t get me wrong, I understand that for some people, getting feedback in the first place is difficult. Finding a good CP is like finding a spouse. Finding a group of them takes a lot of time, and a lot of bad first dates (swaps).
