    Beta reading for middle grade magical fantasy

    Discussion in 'Collaboration' started by Richach, Feb 14, 2020.

    I have finished my WIP (65K) about a young family that is torn between two worlds and the challenges this presents. It has elements of magic, creatures etc. This a voyage of discovery and development which I hope elicits emotion, builds tension and action. It is an easy read or at least I think so!

    I am looking for beta readers and lots of them. To get the numbers I am aiming for (20) I have figured that I should join another forum that caters for betas such as Goodreads. However, if any members here are willing to beta read for me then you are more than welcome to do so. Please read this entire post so that you realise what you are getting involved with.

    So just to clarify:

    • Middle Grade Magical Fantasy
    • 65,ooo words
    • No payment either way - Sorry!
    • I work on a chapter by chapter basis
    I am looking for feedback on:
    • Plot holes
    • Inconsistency
    • Character feedback
    • Plausibility
    • Enjoyment
    • Credibility
    • Catastrophic issues!
    • Any other amazing observations you have

    I am open for beta reading other members work. I may be willing to look at different genres.

    Richach.

    I’d be happy to skim through the first Chapter.

    Who is your target audience?

    Is anybody interested in doing a free beta swap on a chapter by chapter basis? I am sure you know the way this goes. Betas are hard to find and good betas are as rare as hen's teeth.
