Kristen Martin (authorkristenmartin) | 2 comments I am currently seeking beta readers for a young adult science fiction, complete at 66,000 words.

Premise:


It's the year 2055. In order to build a world-class society, an anarchist organization has induced a worldwide coma. All of mankind is unknowingly living in an alternate reality called Dormance . . . and there are no plans to wake them up.

Sixteen-year-old introvert Emery Parker is one such dormant. An academic scholar who avoids ruffling feathers at all costs, Emery finds herself transferring to a boarding school on the outskirts of Arizona. Little does she know, her family carries a secret that has the ability to free the world of its comatose state. When she's approached with an opportunity to do just that, she reluctantly accepts, seeing as failure could mean having her memory wiped clean.

But when tech-savvy Torin Porter reaches out to her from the other side, Emery begins to question everything she was told about Dormance. If her family's secret falls into the wrong hands, the world as she knows it will be faced with irreversible consequences. Now Emery must play both sides to uncover the truth about her family's past or risk leaving mankind to live in an unconscious reality.

Jaxxon D'Malamute | 15 comments Hi Kristen! I'd love to be a beta reader for this project. Are you looking for just plot/character consistency or do you also need someone to look for editing/grammar/spelling as well?

Hi Jaxxon,
Thank you for volunteering! I'm looking for all of the above- plot/character consistency as well as editing/grammar/spelling. Is there an email address I can contact you at?
