I'm about to embark on my first round of contests in July and desperately need beta readers who are prepared to nitpick, scold and criticize the first 5000 words (around 20 pages) of my book. Seriously, I'm asking for punishment here :-).

Is the pace too slow? Are there speedbumps? Is it easy to follow? Does the character have a unique voice? Do I capture the reader's interest from line 1 on page 1? These are the things I'm looking for. Maybe you even have suggestions for improvement.

Insecure? Moi? You betcha.

I am, of course, prepared to return the favor (around 5000 pages, any genre).

My genre is paranormal/urban fiction with a hint of romance (although not till later in the book).

Thank you.

I'm assuming you mean 5000 words not pages. ;)

I work most with paranormal so I would like to help, is always good to meet new people working with this genre.
