So I have recently been hired as an editor for my local library's e-newsletter. I have learned that they have three book clubs with about 15 members in each. Now my wheels are spinning about approaching them to possibly read a bit of my novel and give me critique. It would be anonymous since I will be using a pen name for this novel. This is my first novel; it isn't finished or even typed. But it exists in many scrawled-in notebooks and I really want to share it. Has anyone here tried something like this?
