    Looking for beta reader 65 k 'Friend Island'

    Discussion in 'Collaboration' started by Zeppo595, Aug 18, 2020.

    I wrote this novel back in 2014 - 2017. I sent it out to like 150 agents and got no interest. I would love to get some beta feedback. Anyone interested?

    Here is the blurb:

    “Friend Island” follows a group of friends who have been thrown back together when what was supposed to have been an overdue reunion turns into something far darker. Strained relationships get put to the test with the disappearance of one of their friends and the strange behavior of their host, as the group tries to determine whether to stay or go and wonder if they even have a choice.

    Thanks!

    What's the book really about? Is it a 'murder mystery' type novel where there's an intriguing puzzle to solve? Is it a romance? Is it a 'coming of age' type story when the characters realise what's important in their lives or where they've been going wrong?

    It is a contemporary psychological novel about friends having a reunion on an island. It's really about broken people in varying stages of mental illness desperately trying to keep old ties together and failing and yes, there are some murderous results.

    I’m in the same situation with a novel I wrote 2018 that’s not moving. I had pulled it back and had a professional edit done, but still there must be something missing.

    Is there a chance that you would exchange beta reads? Mine is a mystery about the same word count.
