I'm Greta, a first-time novelist, with a 90K word coming-of-age, women's fiction novel completed. I don't have an agent, as I am still polishing this book. Thus the need for a fellow writer to partner with! Ideally, we would provide honest feedback and encouragement to make our novels the best they can be and ready to query agents.
Books I loved recently: The Grace Year, Writers and Lovers, All the Ugly and Wonderful Things, Nothing to See Here, The Children's Bible
Book that epitomizes me as a reader: The Bell Jar, or Girl, Interrupted (I love dark, quirky, smart females dealing with the heavy issues of mental health and just being female.)
Blurb : 42-year-old tattoo parlor/book cafe owner Britta Larsson has always been good at running away from her problems. Whether it was her toxic parents, the married man she thought she loved in her teenage years, or the heartaches of her early twenties. When she expatriated to Stockholm, Sweden twenty years ago, she left behind the only man she’d ever loved, all her family and friends, and her long-held dream of a writing career, with zero explanation to anyone why. Now a man from her past shows up at her door wanting answers, and Britta is forced to look back on her childhood, her lovers and inner demons, the literal and figurative cuts that she made, and how much life has changed since then. Can she risk letting this man back in?
Respond here if interested in exchanging the first 50 pages to see if this could work.
