Doing It Right Reviews (DIR): Call for Volunteers

A while back on some blog of mine, I tried out a sample review, pointing out what was done well in published speculative fiction (a "positive" critique).  I want to restart this in this blog, but I want to include indies/SPs this time. 

Would anyone be interested in volunteering?

Some caveats:

  • I do not guarantee which samples I will work with, but if you provide an email address, I will email you if I have selected yours.  Another reason I cannot guarantee which samples is that I am doing this in the nooks and crannies of my spare time (weekends only).  Finally, it depends on what type of point I want to make in this blog.
  • I also may not read the full sample.  Again, it depends on what distinguishing quality I am looking for and what I want to blog about.
  • Finally, this blog is just starting, so while I cannot offer much traffic, I am hoping that such analyses will be beneficial to the volunteer and other writers.  But I will include a link to the book or author site.
So, if you are game, please email your fantasy, science fiction, or horror sample link to freelancer AT chiaroscurohouse DOT com. I can read on the Kindle and on the Nook, but if you have it, I really love samples that can be read in Word (they are easier to analyze).  Please also indicate your permission to write about your sample in my blog, including my ability to quote from your work.
