So my last post snagged an excellent beta reader (thanks George!) who offered great insight and some really helpful suggestions. I've reworked the opening segment of my 80,000 word suspense/thriller and need as many folks as possible to give the first few chapters a read-through just to let me know how well the story flows and whether it's sufficiently captivating.

I'm not looking for specific grammar/content editing, just overall impressions. Even an "I hated it," or "It was super awesome," or "I only got through two pages before tossing the laptop across the room in disgust" would be useful.

Reading some of George's WIP actually got me interested in Beta reading as a hobby, so I'd be more than happy to swap material and provide the same types of feedback.

Any takers?

Wife is gone for the week and I have time. I also have a manuscript that needs reading. If you're interested I can forward it to you, or you can download pdf version from the web.

I'm new here so how do we do it?

I think I'm up for beta reading your novel... but what is it about, exactly?
