Hi all! Seeking beta for 76,000 word sci-fi--will swap!
« on: August 03, 2012, 01:15:13 PM »
Hi everyone!

I'm seeking a beta reader for my 76,000 word YA sci-fi.  It's for an agent-requested revision, and I'm mostly looking for "big picture" reactions.  Specifically, if there are any scenes that can be/should be/need to be cut, and if the ending comes across as too cartoonish...

I've posted my first five pages in the First Five Pages section of the forum, so you can check and see if my style works for you...

Many, many thanks in advance, and I'd be more than happy to swap with someone!

I'd be interested in a swap! I have a YA high fantasy of 75k words but I write both sci-fi and fantasy.

Hi infernotea!  So sorry I didn't get back sooner (I almost forgot this post, LOL!)  Anyway, a swap sounds great--I'll send you a message with my e-mail deets. 

Thanks so much for your help!  ;D
