I am looking for an communicative, no-holds-barred BETA for my 75,000-word Urban Fantasy.

I have posted a chapter on SYW and receive fantastic feedback, but I need to take it to the next level. I would love a BETA to read the entire manuscript, tear it apart, and spit it back into my lap.

This is my 8th draft. It is 99.9% free of grammatical/spelling errors. I am looking for help, opinion, guidance on the meat. My characters, plot, scenes, language usage, and the polish that gets a novel past the slush pile of the overwhelmed agents. Oh and nixing my cliches would be very welcome!!

You can see the first chapter in Fantasy SYW 'Truth Untold' for a preview, http://absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=143356

Please let me know if you are interested.

Send me 25,000 words, and I'll get back to you?

I'd be willing to give a go.
