Hi.

I've recently completed the second draft of my second novel. I'm looking for a beta reader to critique and hopefully I can shape it into a stronger draft.

Genre: Drama, Romance, Science Fiction

A twenty something office worker is caught in a love triangle further complicated by future technology.

Regarding feedback, I want to know:

What are your thoughts on the main character? Is he likable? Understandable? Relatable? Flat? Dull?

Does the plot lag in places? Did you feel like you were skimming?

Did the characters motives and actions feel believable?

What characters can be cut/expanded upon?

What did you enjoy reading the most?

What are your thoughts on the ending?

Who was your favourite character?

Were there any parts where you wanted to stop reading? Which part and why?

What parts/plot threads kept you reading?

Which character would you like to meet in person, had you the opportunity?

Did any elements in the novel relate to you in particular?

What was your favourite part in the entire novel?

Plus, anything else you feel you should be edited/improved/cut.

If you're interested, please drop a comment and I'll send a pdf/Word doc via email.

Thank you

Christine (christineparkerco) | 5 comments Hi Ben!

I'd be happy to beta read your draft! Full disclosure: I'm a professional editor but I'll do a full manuscript evaluation for free in exchange for a testimonial for my website, which you can check out here: http://www.chickadeerevisions.com. Romance is my specialty but I think the sci-fi aspect of your story sounds really interesting.

Please email me at info@chickadeerevisions.com if you're interested!
