Welcome to Alien Critiques ! This is your go-to place for book critiques and X-File gifs.
I’m here to offer my services to you. I am nowhere close to being an English major, but I love to read and I’m pretty darn good at English if I must say so. Maybe you’ve been looking at your story for too long and need someone else to find mistakes, or perhaps you’re worried your book just isn’t flowing right. I’m here to help!
What I Read
My preferred genres are: FANTASY, sci-fi, adventure, historical fiction, anything YA
I will read: mystery, horror, fanfiction, etc… I don’t read these genres often and I can’t guarentee my critiques will be great, but I’ll do my best.
I don’t read strictly Romance. If romance is a subplot, then that’s fine. I love my books to have a little romance. But I will NOT read anything that is only Romance.
I don’t read anything that glorifies illegal activity (pedophilia, abusive relationships, etc.) or is Mature/18+. Don’t even think of asking me to read these stories.
Basically, just don’t ask me to read anything that would make your grandmother blush
Be patient. I have a busy life. I love to read and critiquing is a wonderful hobby, but sometimes it can take me a while.
Don’t be rude. Confrontation makes me cry.
If I deny you, please don’t yell at me. I hope to not have to deny a lot of people, but it is always an option.
I will not do a critique until payment is completed.
