This sounds awesome! Prawn status here, but slowly (slowly, slowly) moving up. I'd love to be a part of this!

Awesome! I'm excited to join! Will be a few hours until I can request since I'm still at work, but this looks like it's going to be a wonderful group to be a part of :)

Love this idea! ;D I look forward to offering what I can and getting any advice out there. I too am part of 20booksto50k, which I still find a great resource, but I agree too many posts asking the same questions now, over and over. It'll be nice to be somewhere a little more focused. ;)

I'll join. I'm a plankton. One book out. Draft of book 2 finished, draft of book 3 in progress.
I'd love to swap beta reading or copy editing with others. My real-life critique partners only want to do one chapter at a time. Boo!

I'd love to join if there's still room! Let me figure out my FB password so I can log in from the desktop and join.

Edit: The $0.60 I earned so far today lets me qualify, yes?  :P

What a fantastic turnout! 

I truly didn't expect to reach near capacity so soon. This is great!

But, of course, the flip side is that in order to keep the group members around 25 for more personalized support, I need to stop accepting requests from Facebook until I make sure that everyone who has responded to this thread has been able to join.

Some of you, I have been able to match up with Facebook names, and I'm suspecting some have simply went to FaceBook to join the group without posting here--which is fine too!

Right now, I'm missing the following people in the group and we are already up to 15 members:

RRodriguez (joining later and spot being held)
Nikky Kaye
XBrianNova
DPock
Erik Roman
Brian D Howard
C. Gold
Prairie Girl
Rosie A.
Jerry S.
DM Guay
Plumstead

I would really appreciate it if anyone on the above list would let me know if they are already in the FaceBook Group. I'm guessing a few of you are like me and have a totally different "real life" name.

Once everyone on the thread is accounted for and in the group, if we still have openings, I'll open the group back up on a first come first serve basis. So, if you aren't on the above list, but still want in the group, it wouldn't hurt to request to join in case there are more spots available.

Thank you, everyone, for the great response. I really hope this is the beginning of many helpful and happy friendships!

I've got your back. A spot will be waiting for you. Is Rodriguez your name on Facebook too? (So I'll know it's you?)

I've only got two requests pending, and I can't match them with names from this thread. Are you by chance Sneha or Raven?

I would love to be in this group.  I published my first book in April and am a prawn.  Trying to learn about marketing, etc.

FB name is Lila Wilson.

Will request admittance, and hope it's not already full!  THanks for starting this!

Ha! Learn something new everyday. Didn't even know messages were possible here. Just checked and yes, you are good to go. Thanks!

I'd love to join, but I don't even have a book published yet :( My goal is to publish next year, and I'm making (decent) progress. If I can still contribute I think I would get a lot out of it and likewise help others, but I completely understand if you're aiming for slightly more seasoned authors.

This is where I'm at too. So maybe I'm a proto-fish?

I think one might be me? I'm AJ. My first book is currently sitting pretty at 55,572 words... goal is 82,500 by end of June. So I will be prawning soon, fingers crossed... And I'm keen on a beta critique. I kind of want to get a developmental edit, but they're crazy expensive, so hopefully someone will swap with me? My current project is chick lit with magical realism. But I'm 15,000 deep on a thriller and have plans for a fairy tale and psychological thriller if I ever get my act together...

Anybody dictate? I bought dragon but haven't gotten a dictaphone yet... any recommendations for ones not crazy expensive?
