The trouble with Alphas...

Friday, 25 July 2014

I have two WIPS which are giving me hell right now.

Both are romantic suspense and both are nearly finished. Problem is,  one has been critiqued by an editor at HQN after a partial request (from a pitch contest) and part of the feedback was 'the hero isn't alpha'.

I bloggged on this at the time stating that I don't really like alphas, so I wasn't surprised. I want to polish these up and send them to Entangled, but I am worried I will get the same feedback.

I need help. I could do with a critique partner, too, so I suppose that's my first step. Anyone have any tips on writing alphas? Or anyone know if Entangled will accept beta for suspense?
