J. Calamy | 2 comments I need a beta reader for my novel.

m/m romantic suspense between two bi/pan cismen
~74000 words.
Setting: Singapore, Hong Kong

TW: Includes mob-style violence, PTSD, TBI, amputee combat veteran, some talk of suicide, and rampant pot and opium smoking. Big age difference (48/28) between protags.

Nicholas Erickson is the lowest level functionary at the US Embassy in Singapore, a real step up from prison. Nick lives with a terrible secret: he killed a family of three in a traffic accident, for which he was imprisoned and became a pariah back home. The secret keeps Nick cautious and self-isolating.

Lord Nelson Graves (always Graves never Nelson) is the near-mythic head of crime syndicate Red Sky and the largest arms dealer and drug boss in SE Asia. He is also tired, lonely, addicted to opium and convinced that managing his business doesn’t allow for the distraction of a relationship.

A romance builds between hot-headed, reckless but good-hearted Nick and distracted, unhappy and ruthless Graves. The Boss is trying to get his house in order and eject the thieves and CIA informants that sprouted up while he was infatuated with a previous lover. Nick just wants a fresh start without the baggage of his old life ruining his second chance. They could be great for each other if they could stop arguing.

Help me out! I can't even look at my doc anymore! Quote me your rate and refer previous work please.

Patricia | 18 comments Just sent you a DM! I've got three feedback plans that start with a free read of your first chapter. From after that, there's a basic and deluxe plan.

All plans are built around the 80 beta reading questions I developed to ensure you get the best feedback for the price.

Morgan Lee | 28 comments Hello!

If you are still looking for someone to edit your work, I am available. You can send me an email at or visit my website for more information about how I edit.

I usually charge a flat rate amount of 300 dollars USD for beta reading services and give both in text critiques as well as provide you with a 25+ page report on everything that I both liked and areas that need work.

On my website I have a few testimonials and can provide you with a sample edit of the first 1000 words so that you can get a feel for how I edit.

I look forward to hearing from you soon,
