The "Critique This" Blog

Who We Are...

Critique This is a critique group made up of five aspiring romance authors. On this blog, you’ll read about all things writing. We blog about the ups and downs of the writing process, the ins and outs of querying, the love/hate relationships we have with our current works in progress, and much more.You’ll even get a chance to hear from other writers in the community. Sit back and relax—it’s bound to be an interesting ride.

Courtney Reese

Hello! My name is Courtney. I'm a 24 year old student/writer/daughter/sister/fiancee'. I'm an aspiring author of several genres of fiction. I write both Paranormal Romances and Contemporary Romances, as well as Romantic Suspense, Urban Fantasy, and Young Adult novels.

Currently I am working on a Paranormal Romance series called Nigthlings (though I still have no idea what to name the individual books). I’m also plotting out two other series, though I won’t begin writing them for a while. All three are paranormal in one way or another, though only one is for the YA audience.

Also (as of January 2010) I have started a fourth project--a Romantic Suspense novel based in British Colombia Canada. You can read excepts from Nightlings and my Canadian Romantic-Suspense novel on my personal blog, Work in Progress.

Writing is my passion, research is my hobby. One of my favorite parts to writing books is researching my settings and characters. I love to read and write everyday--and when I can't read (like when I'm at work or driving in the car) I listen to audiobooks!

You've already found me at Critique This WIP but you can also check me out on my personal blog, Work in Progress.

I love blogging and Twittering; I'm also on Facebook but I don't use it as much as Twitter. I also have an addiction to Goodreads. I'm always looking for new friends to chat with online so feel free to add me as your friend!

If you're a writer (a writer who constantly seeks inspiration), I also keep a blog filled with inspirational bits and pieces, ranging from quotes to music to YouTube videos. It's my way of keeping myself going when I'm ready to slow down--especially when writing. Coincidentally, it's titled To Keep it Going.
