Calling Beta Readers

Just a quick post today. I’m looking for beta-readers for a couple of my manuscripts (Maldralith, Summer Rain, Phantom). Descriptions of these three novels are listed on my Writing page, but in general, they are (respectively) a fantasy that is on the line between YA and adult, an adult magical realism psychological novel, and women’s fiction. I’m not asking for people to volunteer to read all three – just one, unless you want to read more. I’d really like to start submitting seriously in the near future, and I’d like to have some regular readers (instead of fellow writer-buddies) read and evaluate these novels.

To note: I’m only going to choose people I know for this. No strangers. I also need people who are willing to read and offer constructive criticism. In other words, I need to know if something is dull, confusing, too obvious, too vague, too cliche, but also to know what you think is good, and where you see room for improvement. I can’t have readers who just say “oh it’s great” or people who volunteer but then never read the book.

If you’re interested, shoot me an email or leave a comment and I’ll email you with details. And thanks in advance!

    Hey Amanda!

    I’m a bit late but I’d bookmarked the page just in case, and if you ever need I would be happy to give Summer Rain a read. I’ve done it for a couple friends before (though in French, but I think I can still spot pace/story/plot issues in English) and you already know the theme is something I’m interested in too! 🙂 You can email me at if/when you still need someone. No problem if that doesn’t work either 🙂
