T.L. Martin | 82 comments Hello,

I'm working on a tight budget and deadline -- not a great combo, I know ;) Looking for 1 or 2 more betas for my high school contemporary romance, and also one more proofreader. Will be sending the ms to betas this Friday or Saturday and will need a 1-2 wk turnaround time. Proofreader would need to be available June 15th and have a one week turnaround time.

Please check the blurb and content warning below first to see if this is the right manuscript for you, and please also include your fees in your response.

Thanks so much ❤︎

Love,
Tawni

LIAR, LIAR blurb:

Dirty.

That’s what I am.

Born a dirty little secret and later sold to the worst kind of evil.

That day broke me, stealing the most sacred parts of my body and my soul. So I ran—from them, from home, from everything.

That’s when I found him. He became my savior before he even knew I existed.

And then I was welcomed into the family.

Now he sees me. I make sure of it.

I notice the way he watches me when I slip from my bed and fall into someone else’s. See the heated flicker in his eyes when I peer up at him from behind red solo cups, wandering hands, and blaring music. Feel the burn in his touch when I stumble and he catches me—and he always catches me.

But I’m no longer the same weak girl he discovered hiding behind his house all those years ago, and some demons simply can’t be set free. All the lies in the world can’t hide that.

Even though the same blood doesn’t run through our veins, I know he can never be mine.

I was never supposed to fall for him.

We’re family now, and I’m going to be a good little sister.

Liar, liar, liar.

Hi Fanna,

It will likely end up anywhere from 90k-95k words.

Under $100 per beta, with more wiggle room for an experienced proofreader.

Gabby (gabbycd) | 88 comments Hi Tawni,

LIAR, LIAR sounds amazing and I'd love to proofread your work! I can have it back in that time frame.
The minimum I charge for proofreading is E$0.002AUD/word (about $0.0013USD), but I'm willing to meet your price limit if this doesn't work for you. You can find more details on my website gabbysbeta.wordpress.com or send me an email at gabbydaloia@outlook.com and we can work it out. I’ll also offer a sample to make sure we’re the right fit.

Thanks!
Gabby
