K.F. Breene | 5 comments I am looking for a couple new beta readers for a 90k word fantasy novel. This will be the first wave of reading. While this is my favorite genre to read, it is the first time I am publishing this genre. I do not need editing or proof reading--I will hire a professional for that near the end. I am looking for comments on flow, pace, plot holes, boring bits, or anything you think I need to improve. Basically, I am interested in what an informed reader would say--anything that might reduce stars in their eyes.

I will be open to compensate. Preferably I would like someone outside my current fan base--for the first time around, I want reactions from people not used to my style and humor. If we make a good team, I would consider bringing you into the beta fold for future publications if you want (also compensated).

If you want more info, feel free to contact me (kfbreene@gmail.com). If you want to stalk me so you don't get the cheesy *please help me* smile, there are plenty of ways. And if you want to take the plunge, let me know :)

Cat (catq) | 4 comments I would be interested in reading and commenting on your "new" genre entry. I have beta read for a few other authors, mostly new, first timers. I am an avid reader in several genres. I will email you my contact details.

Mike | 20 comments K.F.,

I'd be willing to take a look. I've beta read for a half dozen people on here and I think I could offer some constructive feedback.

Here is the link to my "self-advertisement"

...just so you'll know something about me. I am currently working pretty regularly for some indie authors with whom I have developed relationships, and I am helping one with edits and a more detailed reading now. I don't currently have a set compensation expectation tool, so we can talk in more detail about that at another time.

If you are interested in using me as a reader, please send me a PM and I'll send you my personal email address.

If not, best of luck on your new genre.
