booksandpurls | 5 comments I'm looking for a beta reader that would read the first chapter of a romance/mystery story. It's a YA book with some romance and revolves mostly around an eighteen-year-old girl solving riddles. The riddles remind her of her past and also expose her to secrets. I would love it if someone gave me an opinion on it!

Lulu Watson | 12 comments hello :) would you be willing to trade chapters?? I really need someone who doesn't know me to do it. I'm afraid I might get lied to if I have a friend read it lol. Its a romance/thriller and I used a situation I was actually put in to run with a story. are you over 18 and do you have any beta experience?

Hi! I'm actually not over eighteen, and don't have much experience in beta but have critiqued a number of writing before. If you still want the critique, I will need to know how long the chapter is. Thank you!

I'm thirteen. Although I'm much more mature than people my age, and I'm good at noticing mistakes and giving feedback.My chapter is about 2ooo words. If you still wish to continue, I have no problem. I have a full MS and wish to see if the beginning is catchy for readers.

Lulu Watson | 12 comments Might be a little to young :((( i have teenage daughters and I won't let them read it. I don't want anyone getting upset with me for sharing a provocative story with a minor. I would like to see what you have if you want to still share. I read YA and maybe I could still be of help to you:)) if not I completely understand.
