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.
