4000 word historical fantasy

Postby s_c_baker » Tue Dec 04, 2012 12:41 pm

This will be my Q1 entry, and I'd appreciate a full critique with a contest-specific eye.

Glad to return the favour on similarly-sized stories (more or less--willing to go above that count if necessary). wotf008

(If you're not up to the full 4000, check the last entry in the 450 thread.)

I owe you, Stewart, and I'd love to read it. You have my email. wotf007

Not sure how contest-specific my eye is in the Age of Dave, but I could take a look.

I'm pretty sure I owe you more than one, too, so send it my way!

My brain, it is a sieve... wotf001

Thanks for all your offers--and those of you who PMed, as well.

I'll send this out tomorrow at work. On "sick leave" for family reasons today, and limited computer access is in the process of ensuing.
