Want a free query critique or copy of How to Write a Novel? Let's chat!

UPDATE 12:04: My slate is now full! Thank you so much to everyone who reached out!

I'm working on a very interesting project for a very interesting General Assembly class on product management, and I would love 10-15 minutes of your time today (Saturday) or tomorrow (Sunday) to ask you a few questions. Yes, you! Let's talk!

In exchange, I will give you a free query critique OR a copy of How to Write a Novel.

We'll chat briefly about your experience having your writing critiqued, in addition to such completely optional topics as bad reality television, the weather in your locale in comparison to the weather in Brooklyn (which is fabulous, thanks for asking), and the iPhone 6 ZOMG the iPhone 6.

If you're interested, please shoot me an e-mail at nathan [at ] Offer is good for the first ten people.

Thank you!

Darnit, I'm too late. What a bummer because I love chatting. :)

Dang - missed out! Well, I already have a copy of How To Write a Novel and I'm not querying anymore. Your new project does sound interesting, albeit enigmatic. And somehow the new IPhone 6 fits into all this as well. Hmmm....0.o

Mr Bransford, If I have made a short book trailer and include it in my query, is my query going to be dumped by the spam filter? Thank you.

And this is what I get for spending my weekend going to weddings. Oh well. It was fun.

As for reality TV, I have a personal weakness for Project Runway, but since there's a talent element to it, I like to delude myself into believing that it's Quality Reality TV.

Critiques tend to tell you how to do something that's been done, instead of finding out what you are trying to do, and helping you figure out how to do that. That's my experience with critiques.

I also don't like that there's apparently an unspoken rule that critique can never involve conversation. You're supposed to take it, say thank you, and not engage. It becomes a little abusive. And pointless, the more original you are.
