I like the group email idea. If that's what you're doing, add me to the Fantasy list.

No Facebook for me.

Not to worry; sometimes the best feedback is from the n00bs!

The Commercial and Mystery/Crime Drama groups are all set. I'll send out introductory e-mails in a few minutes.

I'm still waiting on a few e-mail addresses for the YA, MG & Fantasy/SciFi groups. If I don't hear back from the remaining YA and Fantasy/SciFi members, I'll go with what we've got thus far.

Hmm. Romance group is still pending. I guess that's a sign I should join.

I'm working on a contemporary romance with a chick lit tone. Right now, I'm piecing the mess together into one (hopefully) coherent manuscript, so I don't need critiques, but brainstorming help may come in handy.

Thanks! PM with my email is coming.

I don't have a Facebook account anymore, so if that's the only option, it wouldn't work for me. If it's an email group, I'm in! Romance and horror, please.

Thanks for doing this!

I'd like to join the mystery group and the historical group. If there's ever a vacancy or enough interest for a second group I'd like to do YA as well. This is an exciting idea!

If there's still room, I'd like to join in on YA/MG! I'm a teen, so I'm thinking that perhaps if people need to bounce ideas off about realistic issues and such, I could be of use. =)

Thank you for putting this fantastic idea together, Rowan! I think it's going to be so useful to have someone to just talk to about some issues, rather than a more strict critique group.

(Also, if there isn't any more room for me, is it possible to put me in a new group? I know that we're waiting on Trisha, but if she decides to join in, then I'd love to be put in a new group with some other people.)
