View Full Version : Seeking Beta for contemporary YA romance

01-02-2010, 04:26 PM
I'm new to this, so I'm not completely sure how it works, but I was wondering if anyone would be interested in reading through my YA novel 'Cold Water'. Yes, it's really long at 100,000 words, but you don't have to read the whole thing. Feel free to request to read just the first 3 chapters, if you like. Anything goes really.

No horror, no gore, no drugs, no sex, no bad language - just some angst and a few bad jokes =D

Here is a short summary of the book:

Girl meets boy. Girl hates boy. But boy and girl eventually fall in love and live happily ever after. Except there's a twist to this story. No. 1: Girl is depressed, cynical, sarcastic and has just run away from home. No 2: Boy is a moron. A cute moron, but still naive and annoyingly cheerful nonetheless. When boy finds girl, brings her back to his house, and ropes her into staying with him for the summer holidays, chaos and broken plates are sure to ensue. But from the shattered porcelain, can something else blossom as well?

Thank you to anyone who may be interested :)

Hi Annmarie :)

I like your little blurb about your book and I love contemporary YA.

I'll have a look at it if you're still needing BETA's. PM me and we can work out the specifics of what you're after.
