Hey, people! Kirky here. I’m an editor, university student and former Inkie. RIP, Inkpop. So long and thanks for all the fish, HC. We all love red herrings.
I’m pretty dormant when at uni as my course is intensive. I’m more active when home and I do come on about once a day to reply to messages and read comments (and stalk my favourite books) wherever I am, so do message me!
I read a fair amount on here, but something has to seriously impress me for me to vote for it. As in, something I’d pay for because I think it’s publishable (even if it’s one chapter out of hundreds). But I’m also a stickler for grammar, so unless a chapter blows me away, I’m unlikely to vote unless the grammar is practically flawless.
If I really enjoy a book, I’ll put it on a reading list. If it’s in the one entitled “I recommend reading these because they’re awesome”, it’s worth checking out.
I don’t do read for reads, and I don’t read on request either. This is because I don’t have time to. Also, I’m a critic monster and a grammar Nazi. I suspect a lot of you wouldn’t like me critiquing your work as, when I critique, I analyse pretty much every word you use. Unless you can take it and are prepared to do the same in return, it’s probably not worth asking me for a read for read. Besides, if I want to read something, I’ll go find it on my own. I have my own tastes in books, and reading is my downtime.
I also don’t appreciate people asking me to update, so here are the ETAs for updates so you don’t have to nag:
