I am looking for a Beta Reader. My book is 80k words, scifi, with a bit of science (but not too heavy) written to make the scientist's journey through time sound plausible and convincing. I have also worked hard to make my characters individual and believable. I want my Beta reader to tell me what works and what doesn't.

This is my first novel, but I have grown a lot through this whole process and made lots of edits and revisions. I think there should be very few grammar issues, leaving you to focus on flow, style, plot, and characters.

I would ideally like to add another 5k words, but I feel like I have told my story so not sure what I can add. Suggestions would be appreciated.

I will Beta in return. I have Beta read several books and enjoy doing so. I will be fair and honest, harsh if necessary. I prefer not to stray too far from scifi/action/mystery sort of stuff. And preferably something complete, or close to. YA or adult is fine.

I'll gladly exchange beta. I also have a scifi/action I need beta read. Mine is 60k and i'm looking to add another 10-20k in there somewhere.

Jason, I sent you a PM. Let me know if you got it.

And I am still open to anyone else who may be interested.

uhm, is your story finished? If everything is good, you don't need to add another 10k just to make your book longer.

I'm willing to beta or swap or whatever, if you like.
