View Full Version : If you'll read mine, I'll read yours

Hi everyone:

I am looking for a beta reader for the first chapter of my international spy fiction novel. It is about 5,000 words. In exchage, I will read your work of about the same length.

Looking for comments on whether the work sounds intriguing, whether it sparks the interest to read further and whether it is engaging.

Let me know,

I'd be willing to. My stuff is much different--I am aiming for literary fiction. I read widely, and enjoy a good spy story. What kind of fiction do you read?

I read mostly thrillers and the occasional murder mystery.

In the next couple of weeks I may have something to send you.

I'd be willing to exchange chapters as well! The current one I'm trying to have beta'd and/or critiqued is a crime novel (see my thread in this forum). Let me know!

Sure, I can help you with that.

I'll have a look Eddy.

And since I've got nothing to send in return, what have you got to lose?
