      Oathbringer Spoiler Policy   11/13/2017

      Oathbringer is out! Let's make our policy on spoilers clear! 1. You must preface topics with Oathbringer spoilers with the prefix [OB] in the front 2. You are only allowed to post spoilers and spoiler topics in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board, Cosmere Theories, and some select work-related forums. 3. For posts in the Oathbringer Spoiler Board you do not need to use spoiler tags inside a topic marked [OB]. For Cosmere Theories, you also do not need to put spoiler tags inside your topic if the topic has [OB] in the title. However, for Cosmere Theories, if you are adding Oathbringer stuff to an old theory without the [OB] tag, those must go in spoiler tags and you must make it obvious outside the spoiler tag that the spoiler is regarding Oathbringer content. 4. For select things that do require talking about OB spoilers, in Events, Coppermind, and Arcanum forums, those are allowed but keep OB spoilers in spoiler tags 5. Avoid and minimize spoilers in topic titles--even though those two boards will not appear in the Recent Topics ticker, topic titles still appear in Recent Activity and the forum home.  6. You aren't allowed to post Oathbringer spoilers in places other than listed, even with spoiler tags.  It will be nine months and then the Oathbringer board will be re-merged with the Stormlight board and you will not need to tag these spoilers. If you'd like to move something in the Stormlight Archive board to the Oathbringer board, to update it with new Oathbringer information, Report the post and we will happily move it to the Oathbringer spoiler board. Part-by-part Reactions Though the Oathbringer Spoiler Board will be very spoilery, very fast (maybe don't come there until you've read the book, as people do have copies that bookstores sold early), you'll have these five topics for reactions if you want to nerd out: Part 1 Reactions
      Part 2 Reactions
      Part 3 Reactions
      Part 4 Reactions
      Full Book Reactions For parts 1-4, they will not include the interludes immediately following it. On Discord All Oathbringer spoilers on Discord will be exclusively in the #oathbringer_spoilers channel for the nine month spoiler period and nowhere else.

Alpha Readers Thread

I have some time to do another alpha read, especially if someone is looking to do a swap. PM me if interested.

Quick reminder, however, to be sure to do a few crits on the board before getting into the alpha stuff. Critiquing is hard to do, and hard to read on your own work. Getting a feel for the community and how we work can be very beneficial in helping interpret critique feedback.

Hey, guys, new here. If anyone has any tips or tricks on how and where to begin, great, and if not, I'll just creep around until I figure it out. :)

Yeah, what aero said, and message @Silk when you want to submit, as you'll need to be added to the email circulation list, but also post in the Submissions thread, so that we can see you request, in case there are any hiccups.

Welcome to Reading Excuses @shadowkissed :)

I'm putting feelers out for an eventual alpha read of TWD. Likely a month or so away, and looking for alpha, not beta read. Anyone want to do an alpha swap in about a month?

Posted (edited)

Hey guys, I'm putting the finishing touches on a manuscript that I hope to have finished later this week.  It's an urban fantasy about people who hang out with the (un)dead in an abandoned tram depot.  Current length is under 35k words.

Would anyone be willing to give it an alpha read?  I can do a swap if anyone's interested.  Hoping to get alpha feedback by the end of June, as I'm also going to be hearing back from my local writing group's alpha read by that time.

Hey @Kuiper, good to see you back on. You have my attention :) I'm interested. I'm not quite ready myself, but I'd be interested in doing a swap if you'll give me a credit for mine when it's ready? I'm thinking it will be a month or so.

@Robinski I'd be happy to do a full read for yours, too, when you're ready.
