T.T. Kove (ttkove) | 1 comments Hi!
I'm an author of mostly m/m romance (and a little f/f sometime too) and I am looking for a beta reader.

My stories aren't that long, they range from 10K to about 30K. Some stories are erotic, some are plain romances.

I have one stories published, and three more to come in 2012, and I find myself in need of a beta reader now. I hope someone is interested! ^__^

If anyone has any more questions, don't hesitate to ask. ^_^

message 27: by Tana (new)

Tana (tana_t) Hi everyone, I hope this is appropriate place to post my message if not mod's please delete if you need I will not be offended at all.

Anyway I am not a author or a beta reader but what I have done was start a new group on Goodreads called Making Connections. This week I have had over 200 members sign up. The idea behind this was making connections for authors/readers/bloggers/reviewers etc.
And it seems to be working out. I have threads posted for the authors and the readers who are looking for reviewers/author interviews and I made a section for beta readers.
We have authors who are looking for beta readers and I find only some of the members are interested in this important tasks. Anyway so what I thought is I would find a group who had members who may want to come over take a look at the group and see if you would like to get involved.

Everyone is invited to join and I will refer members over to this group also.

Thanks so much Tana

message 28: by Jennifer (new)

Jennifer Oberth | 2 comments Hi everyone,

I'm looking for beta readers for two mystery stories.

1.) The third short story in the Ella Westin Mysteries -'Toxic Train'. It's just under 20,000 words. The story takes place in 1827 on a train. (I haven't come up with a blurb yet!)

You can check out info on the first two Ella Westin stories by visiting my blog (www.jenniferoberth.blogspot.com) and clicking the book cover on the right. That'll bring you to the Smashwords page that has the description. (I'm not putting the direct link here in case it's not allowed - I'm not trying to sell here!)

2.) The first in a new mystery series, 'Georgia Meets Virginia'. This story takes place in Illinois in contemporary times.

"Freelance chef Ginny Travis knocked on a door and minutes later, she's investigating a murder. It's enough to kill anyone's appetite."

Both stories are ready and as good as I can make them before sending to my editor but I'd like another reader or three to find any mistakes/issues that might still be there.

(I have Word and prefer Track Changes as I find it the easiest to work from.)

Thank you!

Jennifer Oberth

message 29: by Melanie (new)

Melanie Surani (melaniesurani) | 4 comments Hi,

I'm looking for a few new beta readers. What hasn't worked in the past is if the reader is too far out of my target audience ... so I'm looking for someone who enjoys mysteries with a female protagonist, and falls within the 20-40 age group.

I have one book out already (the first in the series), and I'm trying to refine the second. Not having read the first one might be good so that you can point out what information needs to be recapped to make the book read independently if necessary.

The book's working title is "Exchange", and is about an American college student (she's about 27 -- she's having trouble figuring herself out) on an exchange trip to Germany. There, she runs into an ex boyfriend, rekindles with him a bit, but then he's kidnapped.

It's in its second draft, and currently clocks about 40,000 words. Please let me know if you're interested!

Thanks,
Melanie Surani

message 30: by Delancey (new)

Delancey Hello: I'm looking for at least two beta readers for a YA paranormal book that is complete at 65,000 words. The working title is "From the Shadow's Grasp" and it revolves around a 16 year old girl who moves with her family to NYC where she learns that her new home is haunted. She learns that she has an unusual power to connect with supernatural energies and finds a group of people willing to help her hone this power. In so doing, she becomes entangled in the mystery of her handsome ghost's death and finds herself responsible for stopping a similar tragedy much closer to home.

Any interest? DM me please!


message 31: by Delancey (new)

Delancey I should mention that I'd be very willing to offer the same for another writer!

message 36: by Francene (new)

Francene Carroll I have a couple of novellas that I'd love to get some feedback on from betas. One is a 30,000 word romantic suspense (more suspense than romance), and the other is a 15,000 word vampire novella based loosely on Dracula.

Please let me know if you're interested. I'd love to return the favour for manuscripts up to 40,000 words.

YIKES, on the home page you can read about books, etc ., but nothing says FORUMS or anything, Then here you have to jump in at the top UGG nevermind...
