Three Chapters Revamped...Finally!

I'm sighing hugely right now. After brain-draining, slow-going days and weeks of revisions, I've finally gotten through edits of my initial story for the umpteenth time.

As a result, I totally revamped the initial three chapters and I need help.

My crit group has endured so many revisions of this book that I can't ask them to look at these chapters again. Besides, they must know my characters as well as I do, so they wouldn't notice if I've stripped too much backstory out or not at this point.

So...I'm looking for two or three writers who love reading inspirational romances, willing to swap 30 double-spaced pages with me for fair, honest critiquing. Any takers?

Update: Got my takers! Thanks everyone!

Surrendering to Him,

Eileen

Do you have to limit the swap to another romance writer/reader? If not, I'll swap 30 pages of Proverbs devotional with you.

Sorry, I got a little excited there. I write inspiration WF with strong romantic thread. You can check out my blog and click on the links to read a little snipped from my stories, which are currently ALL going through revisions! ACK!

I'd be happy to read for you. I'm a big Inspirational fiction fan!
I don't have anything to swap with you right now, but may take you up on that in the future.

Is this the one I already read? If not, I'll swap. :-)

Great work on the revising, I always find it so painful at times:) Looks like you got some takers, but I'd always be happy to read anything of yours.
