View Full Version : Looking for a Beta Reader for 58k word YA Sci-Fi

02-06-2012, 03:10 PM

I'm currently looking for someone who would be interested in reading a 58k word YA novel in the Sci-Fi genre.
The story's based on an alien planet, set in a military school for younger people, who are being trained to fight in a war between the Greys (aliens) and Earth. It's written in first person present tense and has a reasonably open ending.

Some questions I would like answered by the beta would be:
1. Is the ending too open? Is it satisfying?
2. Is the grammar and tense okay?
3. Is the pacing okay?

These are the things I think might be a problem, but I'd like some clarification.
If it's possible, I'd also like to send the MS through email, rather than private messages, as it's quite long. But if that's not okay, I could send it chapter by chapter.

Thank you in advance.
