Ade S (Ade-S) | 3 comments Hiya, I am currently looking for a beta reader. I am on second draft of a historical novel (a story about two near-orphans growing up in Victorian England. The story follows them from childhood to adulthood as they fight their way through years of drudgery, hardship and discoveries).

It is quite gritty, and it is neither a romance or erotic novel, but it does have elements of romance and a few sexual scenes that is not suitable for young adults. First draft is 205,000 words.

I am looking for someone who can give me deep critiques. I also like weekly (or daily, depending on your schedule) feedback. If you are interested, please contact me and I shall send the first 10 pages to gauge your interest. Thank you.
