View Full Version : Newbie Seeking Beta Reader for Science Fiction Novel

03-21-2010, 06:29 PM
The facts:

Novel is a 70K word science fiction/fantasy story with elements of gay romance (it's that last bit that's keeping my usual beta reader from reading it-he refuses to read gay romance). I've submitted this to agents already, but have received round the board rejections.

What I'm looking for:

I don't need a line by line critique, unless that's you want. I would like an overall opinion of the work, whether or not it's marketable, the quality of the writing and story construction, all the normal stuff.

Is anyone interested? I would be very grateful. I'm a bit new to all this, so let me know if I'm doing something wrong.

Perhaps posting your query letter in QLH wold be beneficial.

I sent you a PM about the beta-reading, and agree on the point about waving your query letter at SYW. It's a useful place!
