Lynn Lawler | 12 comments Hello, I need a beta to give me one last read for my novel. It is about an older woman who is haunted by a past love while a new one lurks on the horizon. Along the way, a mystery is uncovered. There is romance, drama, and paranormal. The story partially takes place in an old Victorian house where the secrets lurk. I need to have this done as soon as possible as my publisher is waiting for it. Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!

Marta :} | 52 comments Hi Lynn,

Your novel sounds absolutely thrilling, I'm a huge fan of mystery with romantic sub-plots and I'd love to beta read your book!
I offer general feedback (on pace, characters, plot-lines, plot twists, conflicts), chapter-by-chapter commentary and comments on the manuscript. I have a fast turnaround - usually between one week and two weeks. I can do it within a week or even faster if you're only looking for a general feedback on your story!
You can check more details on my service here:
And you can email me at if you're interested in working with me!
Looking forward to hearing from you!
