    [No longer looking!] Seeking Betas for first 9.5k words of Urban Fantasy! :)

    Update: As of Oct 24th, I've gotten plenty of critique and am ready for revisions. No longer looking!

    I've recently finished some significant revisions to my novel's opening stretch, and I wanted to get opinions on what does/doesn't work. This would be the first 3 chapters, which equal 9,500 words. I'm willing to critique a short story or novel section of similar length. I prefer reading Sci-fi and Fantasy. YA is fine, but no romance please.

    Here's the first line of my query, to give an idea of what the book it about:
    At seventeen, Linda is finally an orphan. She'll shed no tears for the man who treated her like a mistake. But with him dead, Linda has inherited his enchanted blade and the family duty: keep Users and their vile magic out of the city.

    I've already posted some of the first chapter in SYW.
    Here is a link, in case anyone wants a sample before reading more. PM or posting here is fine. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

    Once again looking for critique on the first few chapters of my novel. Updated the first post so it's more current, and giving the topic a bump.

    Hi! I am looking for a way to start getting more active in the critiquing forums, so I think I can give this a go =).

    I have a steadily good record with beta-ing and critiquing, i.e. I am not snarky and I try to offer as much help as I can. Please PM me if you are interested.
