Liz Meldon (liz_meldon) | 23 comments Hello all!

I'm looking for a handful of betas (max 5) to read over my paranormal romance novella. It's the prologue to a series, and if you enjoy vampire hunters, vampires, and awkward shenanigans at a masquerade ball, then I'd love to have your opinions.

No need to edit, proofread, etc. I've got hired folks doing that. Just looking for an overall opinion of the story, and if you as a reader would be even mildly interested in continuing with the series when you're finished. Easy peasy.

This book does include a sex scene, so if you're uncomfortable with that, this might not be the piece for you. Oh, and a little bit of cursing. And some surly vampires.

Please note that I'm hoping to get all feedback returned by September 5th, and I'll be emailing copies of my most recent/updated draft next week (most likely the 20th). Everyone gets busy, so if you realize after that the 5th won't work with your schedule, just get in touch with me! No hard feelings. :)

Book Blurb (also a WIP):

One night can change everything.

That's what they always say, and for now, vampire hunter Delia hopes it's true. She's sick of being nothing more than a lowly grunt in her hunter league, stuck on surveillance duty and low-level vamp busts that other hunters tend to take credit for anyway.

When her informant drops an amazing lead in her lap, she jumps at the opportunity to take down Claudia, rumored vampire head honcho and top of the Most Wanted list at headquarters. Donning a mask and an uncomfortable dress, Delia throws caution to the wind and attends a private masquerade ball for Harriswood's human and vamp elite, stake in hand, ready to prove herself once and for all.

But it doesn't take long for the mediocre hunter to realize she's in way over her head...

One night. One job. One man. One chance to change her life.

All she has to do is not screw it up.


Any takers? Let me know! Thanks guys :)
