Dalton Cortner (daltoncortner) | 2 comments Hello,

Bit of a unique request here. I wrote and published my sci-fi novel The Athena Operation in 2016. Recently the sequel has been completed. I'd like to find a beta reader for the sequel.

As the sequel, it's about 98k words so it is significalty bigger.

What I'm mainly looking for is some feedback about plot points, flow, and sentence structure. Also if you happen to notice any typos or anything, that'd be appreciated.

The uniqueness is going to come from the fact that it's pretty much required to read the original book as I'd want the beta to be familiar with the world, characters, etc. It's free on KU to read.

So, if you can PM me a quote including any cost you would charge to read the first story and then beta the sequel, I'd appreciate it. I'm looking for 1-2 people. Thanks, folks!

Cimone Watson | 94 comments Hi, Dalton. If you're still looking for a beta reader, I'm interested. I can't see a place to PM you on your page. I'm willing to do a sample read of the first 2k words of the first book for free. I would charge you $1 per 1k words for the sequel and $0.40 per 1k words for the first book. If you are interested, please PM me here or email me at
