Cassie Dutton | 2 comments Hello,

I am a Comparative Literature major looking to get into beta-reading. I am interested in editorial publishing and want to get a taste for early book production.

Looking for a shorter piece for my first project, a short story or a first few chapters perhaps.

Best,
Cassie

Joe Hall | 17 comments I'd appreciate feedback on a couple of chapters. It's realistic fantasy, Mostly realistic with assorted people vying for a MacGuffin.

Hi, Cassie-

Congratulations on starting your first project! If you'd like a second one, mine is fairly short (15,000 words) contemporary, science-based middle grade:

Layla is an astronomy-obsessed 5th grader who plans an eclipse expedition for her family that doesn't always go as planned. For kids 7-12. Includes science facts and activities.

I've already incorporated comments from my critique group on the full manuscript, so it's (mostly, hopefully) almost ready to go out the door. I have published nonfiction articles and one book, but this is my first novel.

I don't need detailed edits and critique, just a single read-through + general comments along the lines of the Beta Reader Checklist. PM if this project sounds interesting to you. It would be a good project for you if you'd like to explore children's publishing.

thanks!
Meg
