Allison | 24 comments Hi there. Looking for a beta reader for my current WIP, which I'm currently 70K words into. In addition to offering constructive criticism, I'd like you to act as a sounding board to bounce ideas off of. That way I can know which ideas work and which don't. I'm currently about halfway through my first draft and taking a hiatus to rewrite my first 5 chapters. As for the novel itself...It's literary fiction set during World War II. It primarily takes place in Nazi Germany and occupied Poland and follows two main characters from opposite sides of the war. There will be some violence, explicit sex, and other sensitive content, but I hope that won't deter me. Please, contact me if you're interested! I'd love to give you a plot summary, as well as an outline that covers about 98% of the story, not counting the third act.

Hi Allison:
I might be interested. I'm a newbie writer (just finished my first novel draft) and am looking for betas myself. I have never been a beta before, so I want to help other writers and see what it's like myself to be a beta. Contact me by email first to let me know you are interested at djastuart1@yahoo.com and then it might be good to talk on phone. Look forward to hearing from you-Duncan
