View Full Version : Beta Reader Needed for Young Adult Post-Apocalyptic

Okay, after much thought, I decided to give this a shot. The novel is already finished, but I kind of want a second set of eyes to go over it, because as much as I'd like to believe I'm the greatest writer ever, I know I have my blindspots and need someone to call me on them. I had been posting in SYW, but feel I could benefit from a more intensive, one-on-one approach.

It is Young Adult, so I'd prefer someone with knowledge of said genre. It's also post-apocalyptic, so yeah, it also delves into some damn dark territory as well, so it's not for the squeamish.

I wouldn't mind a partnership where we exchange manuscripts and help each other out, though again, would prefer it to be YA, because that's the genre I know best. It also would be nice to have help on synopsis or query letters, publishing stuff, because I've had no luck there, but unfortunately, I wouldn't be able to reciprocate there, because the more I read about it, the more I fear I'm trapped in some kind of Zeno's Paradox where the more I try, the further I get from my target.

Anyway, if interested, PM me and will figure things out from there.

Hi there, if you haven't found anyone, I'd be interested in swapping with you. My novel is a 68k YA sci-fi/dystopia. PM me and we can swap the first few chapters to see if we are a good fit!
