Sharon Coleman (sjcoleman) | 7 comments Hi. I'm seeking a beta reader for my memoir.

My intent was to have it read like a novel along the lines of Glass Castle and Angela's Ashes.

It's about two sisters grieving after their mother's suicide. Most takes place in a British boarding school (which is not like Hogwarts at all!)

I made a book trailer here so you can see if it appeals.

If you are interested, please rsvp here or send me an email at:

I viewed your trailer and I am very interested in beta reading your memoir. As an edit/beta reader, the memoir is one of the genres I read. My website, The Writer's Reader, details my deep publishing credentials as well as explains my various services. If you would like to see if we are a fit, please send a sample to Thanks!
