So I'm trying to figure out what the proper etiquette is in dealing with several situations I've run into when it comes to getting my book critiqued. Most of the time it's the people that drop off the face of the planet. They get my stuff. They say they will read my stuff, then they just disappear without a trace. How do you deal with that? Do you just let it go? Is this just something I deal with? I would say only about 5% of people who said they'd read my story and tell me what they think ever actually does. This includes those whose stories I have read in exchange.
