Neryn (readingneryn) | 1 comments Hello all!

I'm available to beta read any and all types of genres (my favorites however being YA fantasy, thrillers and horror), I'm an avid reader and currently studying to become a publisher so any and all experience is welcome.

Comment here or PM me, if it's interesting to me I'll take your work on with stride.
Hope to hear from you!

William Mallowson | 4 comments Hello Darling,
Just as a passing note, have you Beta read other work or are you trying it out- Given 'New Beta'? I'm just curious.
I would technically class mine as a YA with mixed themes such as Detective work.
If you're interested, I can send you the first Chapter and a Questionnaire to fill out as a 'test try'.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Have a good day.

William Mallowson | 4 comments Darling is just force of habit, I work with around a lot of customers. Sorry.

Ah, I see. It did say it was just Beta reading service you provided.

If you're still interested, I welcome Critique (it's best to be blunt after all).

William Mallowson | 4 comments ...I'm also new to this site as well.
If its like the Beta page, it's not the one under it but next to it to join. Follow along the page. I also though it was under.

Helen Hyland (helen_hyland) | 13 comments HI!!

I am looking for some Beta's for my Apocalyptic / Romance (book 1)- approx 59k words - completed and has been through a professional edit round. I just would like some content read and suggestions.

- message me if you are interested?


blurb:

5 EXTINCTION LEVELS EVENTS HAVE ALREADY HAPPENED. CAN WE SURVIVE A 6TH?

In two weeks life on Earth would end. Victoria Phillips was one of the fortunate ones, she'd won a spot in Earth's underground sanctuary. Unfortunately, it came with Phoenix Tanner. He'd been sent to escort her to safety, but the man drove her nuts with his arrogant, annoying, sexist attitude. She was torn between kicking his shins and running her nails down his back, tracing that delicious tattoo.

She was relieved when they picked up more winners and his attention shifted away from her. But the more time the group spent together; the more she got to know Nix...and she began to suspect that the lottery wasn't all that random after all.

Would this apocalypse turn the world into a Utopia or a Dystopia? That is if they even survived

Goodness Nwankpa (goodnessnwankpa) | 43 comments Hi Neryn!

I have a 55,000 word realistic YA fiction that’s in need of a beta's critical eyes. (WARNING: it deals with sensitive topics and can get dark at times!)

I have made some previous changes based on feedback provided by prior betas, but my manuscript is still in need of a fresh pair of eyes with a different perspective.

My story is not a thriller (I tend to focus more on the emotional aspect of things than the action), but I still want to make sure it’s an engaging read that’s capable of holding readers’ attention.

I have included the synopsis below so you can get an idea if it’s something that you’re interested in. Thank you for your time.

Synopsis:
Fourteen year old Alina thought that above all, she could trust Gaten. He’s been her rock since tragedy befell her three long years ago. But one day, she finds a letter; a letter is all it takes for Alina’s world to once again dismantle before her eyes. And suddenly, she’s thrown into doubt about the one individual she believed that she could rely on. In a desperate bid for answers, Alina decides to take matters into her own hands. The life altering consequences are ones that she did not anticipate.

Once again, thank you for your time.

Kirk | 128 comments Hi Neryn (and anyone else reading this),

I'm currently looking for beta reader or critique partners for my 10K word sci-fi short story, and I came across your post. Here's a (very rough) blurb for my story:

We've all seen movies about brave explorers leaving Earth in search of new homes when the planet becomes uninhabitable. But what those that stay on Earth? What about those that get left behind? My story tackles that question, and follows a father and son as they try to carry on, and as they think about what to do next.

It sounds a little dark, but hopefully I've made it positive and up-lifting. Anyway, I don't need any critique on the prose, as yet. That includes spelling and grammar issues. Those things can wait until a later draft. I want to get the bones of the story right beforehand. What I need help with now is someone who can pick out any problems with the story's plot, character, and pacing.

As for anyone else reading this who happens to be interested, I'm available to beta swap and critique any genre, and a script of any length. I don't really read romance and erotica, as they're not really my cup of tea.

If this sounds up your alley then send me a private message.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Kirk.

Hi Kirk,
I would be willing to swap. I am also looking for similar feedback on plot, pacing, and characterization for a story I just started on. It's around 7k words.
