    Beta Reading Exchange betas on my first novel?

    Discussion in 'Collaboration' started by terobi, Feb 16, 2016.

    Hi all;

    I completed the first draft of my first novel a few months ago. I've edited it, ironed out the wrinkles, and had it alpha-read by a few friends studying literature; and now I need beta readers.

    My novel is 90k words; YA-ish, sci-fi-ish (near future), and post-apocalyptic-ish. Yeah.

    I will happily beta read for you in exchange.

    Please PM me if you're interested!

    Jonny

    Got a second draft of this, thanks to some very useful feedback from @Tenderiser . Would appreciate a few more betas, and will happily beta for you in return.

    Cheers,

    Jonny.

    I wouldn't put money on it - I'm not great at redrafting!

    Difficult to describe without giving too much of the plot away. Post-apocalypsey story of the wealthy cities, the scavenging wastelanders, and the network of vertical farms which produce the world's food supply.
