NOTE FROM HOPE: You either love or hate critique groups, but find one that clicks, and you'll sing it's praises from the rafters. Some of the best critique groups are originated by writers who could not find one that works. Having a guidebook to get you started makes for a successful group that could stand the passage of time, opinions and colorful personalities.
