UPDATE: FOUND A BETA. THANKS!
Hi,

I suppose in addition to posting a sample chapter under SYW should also post here! I put "paranormal" in quotes because that aspect is not the central part of the story, although there is a concentration of it at the beginning to ensure reader understands its presence. I think of the novel more of a mainstream women's with paranormal aspects.

I'm looking for Beta who is experienced writer and can articulate reasons for their suggestions, objections, issues, etc. Hearing someone hates something or it hits them wrong, without an explanation, doesn't help me.

Not particularly looking for grammatical issues, but more big ticket items: Plot, transitions, character development, flow, voice,etc.
If Interested, please PM me. Thanks!

Novel "completed" at ~85,000 words (changes because, is it ever complete before your agent asks for it :)

Will be glad to be a beta reader/or crit partner for you, as well.

My sample under SYW: SciFi/Fantasy, entitled: Sampl Beta: Heirs of the Collective.
Also you can pull up my crit posts. Please let me know if you need anything else. Thanks.

Looking forward to partnering with the right guide.

I'm finishing up another novel right now, but I'm always looking for something interesting to read. If you want, you can send me the first chapter and we can go from there.
