Stephanie Morrison | 5 comments Hi authors,

I'm an avid reader, will read anything from hard sci-fi to romantic thrillers. Only genre I don't go for is historical fiction. I'm writing my own short stories (currently sci-fi), so developing an eye for plot/structure, excess use of passive, excess adverbs etc. I'm currently looking for connections/knowledge/experience in the writing industry, so my beta reading is free.

Send me a message at wonwomanbusiness@gmail.com if you'd like me to look at your work. I'll be most useful when you are specific about what you want me to look for. I will be ruthless but constructive if you ask for it, and gently, positively constructive if you ask for encouragement. Cheers!

Steph

Jay Storey (jayallanstorey) | 80 comments Hi, Stephanie,

I'm looking for Beta Readers for my 75,000 word YA/Science Fiction novel ‘The Black Heart of the Station’.

Synopsis:

Fifteen-year-old Josh Driscoll lives in the ‘Station’, an underground city whose age and origins are lost in the mists of time. When Josh steals a space suit, hacks into the Station’s security system, and escapes to the surface, he sees a frozen wasteland, and the distant outlines of shattered ancient buildings. He becomes obsessed with knowing how it all came to be.

As punishment for the theft, as well as other minor crimes and mischief, Josh is forcibly enrolled as a novice monk at Saint Carmine’s, the Station’s resident monastery. At first desperate to escape, he’s gradually drawn into the monastery’s scriptures, which seem to answer the questions he’s been searching for. From those scriptures, Josh comes to believe that the ‘Black Heart’, a computer complex of unknown purpose buried in an area critically damaged centuries ago, is vital to their future survival.

To save the Black Heart, Josh must battle the governing Council, of which his own father is a member, who are determined to demolish it to clear the way for desperately needed living space.

Thanks

Jay
