BeARiot | 1 comments Hi, my name is Charlie. I am looking for a few people to beta read the first chapter of my novel in exchange for me reading theirs. If I really like your chapter and the story seems to be my cup of tea, I am up for beta reading your entire novel.

I am nearly finished editing the third draft of my novel, just not quite ready to show the full thing to beta readers at the moment. If you do like it and want to read the rest of it when its ready, then that's great. If not, that's fine too, no pressure lol

Right now, I want to know if I have a strong opening to my story and what impressions people get from it.

My novel is a new adult contemporary fantasy set in Edinburgh over the Christmas period.

I am up for reading anything, fiction or non-fiction. However, my main interests are NA, YA, fantasy, sci-fi, horror and contemporary.

Thank you, and I look forward to exchanging with you! :D
