I am so scared to post this but here it goes. I have finally gotten my 25,000 word horror novella to what I want for beta readers (aside from the really harsh polishing job) and I need honest opinions. I have only ever written young adult books and this is an adult horror novella so I have no idea if its good or not.
It is about a young artist who has been stalked by a demon for his entire life but no one ever believed him so as soon as he turned 18 he moved hundreds of miles away to avoid it. After he is in Maine for 6 years he discovers and rescues an unconscious girl on the beach who claims to be an angel.
If interested, let me know. Either comment, PM me, or email me at sknhammerstone@gmail.com

I will beta read?. What format is it in?


message 3: by [deleted user] (new)

It is in word 2010 or google docs. It is the first adult thing I have written so it could be absolute shit :P That is why I need beta readers. I need to know if it is even worth submitting to publishers and if so, what I need to change.

Okay, got you. I'll take the Microsoft doc


message 5: by [deleted user] (new)

I sent it to the gmail address I have for you. It isn't very long (25,000 words)

Send it on over Shay. FallingAuthor@aol.com. I'll take the Word doc and then I'll convert it to PDF so I can read it on my Kindle. It will be a couple of weeks before I can get to it, but I will. ;)


message 8: by [deleted user] (new)

Thanks Marissa, will do :) The main 2 problems so far seem to be that it can get a little confusion and that it's narrated with a male POV and he isn't quite... male enough. I'm working on that though :P


message 9: by [deleted user] (new)

I seem to have a failure notice on the email. It wouldn't send...

Yeah, that would be good. It is probably my gmail being stupid. For almost the entire month of july every time I sent an email it saved it to drafts. I started wondering why no one was responding until I realized it was because I never responded to them :P

No problem and no rush ;)
I have to finish at least two before I start another one.

Anyone else want to read it?

As soon as I finish The Rift, which is what I'm reading now, I'll read it. :)

Shay Can you send it again please? Remember the whole email thing, and it is not in my Google Drive.


message 23: by [deleted user] (new)

Sure. :) It has the male POV fixed now and has the male stamp of approval


message 24: by Lisa (new)

Lisa (moondancing) | 29 comments It was good :D

Kayla West | 28 comments I would love to beta read this one. It sounds interesting. Is there still a chance to do that?

And thanks Jackie :) THings you would change or add to it?
I saw you sent me more of yours. Planning on reading that tonight after my classes.

Yep, I'm just writing a little here and there.


message 31: by Marisa (new)

Marisa Oldham (marisaoldham) | 554 comments Mod
I've been writing all day. I'll try to read some of this tonight. I finished The Rift last night. Review coming soon :)


message 32: by Kayla (new)

Kayla West | 28 comments I really liked this one. It was way interesting near the end. You know how some books have their chapters start in the middle of pages? What about possibly doing that? Just a suggestion. I loved how near the end we had more of Eve's story.
Great writing.


message 33: by [deleted user] (new)

I will have to try that. And Eve was an... odd character to write. She has a whole lot of travel with 3 different sides I have to embody. Innocent and childlike, formless demon, and succubus killer.


message 34: by Kayla (new)

Kayla West | 28 comments Well, you did a good job with her I must say.


message 35: by [deleted user] (new)

Thank you :)
