View Full Version : Here thee, Here thee: Light SF Romance novel needs some betas!

So far I have one beta reader, but I think I need one or two or three more--I currently have one for general plot etc, but I am also looking for one who likes to critique grammar etc

Here (http://www.absolutewrite.com/forums/showthread.php?t=250448) is where I am currently working on the query, and soon I will be posting a synopsis

Anyways, to get a brief sense of my writing, here is the first three sentences of the first chapter:

It is the year 2324, and yet, we still havenít invented a tool that can help a person escape nightmares. Weíve had a few people collaborate on attempting to create some type of mechanism that could at least stabilize our bodies in order to prevent bad dreams, but that just didnít work. I think it is impossible to invent such a device, which is really quite unfortunate for me.

If you want I will swap MS and give you feedback too--if you just want to critique me and give me feedback, that's fine! :)

I got two so far--that means if one more person is interested, let me know!

I actually need 1 or 2 more beta readers, so please let me know--I'm willing to swap!

I'm game.

My background is Lit Crit, with a nice, heaping helping of Art History. I can do a grammar check, or, if you prefer, line edit.
