Hey Craig,
I'm also new here (just joined). I live in the Annapolis, Maryland area and write speculative fiction. I'm working on my second novel (now in 3rd draft). If you or anyone else is interested in beta-swapping/critiquing, let me know.

Hello All,
I'm new here as of today. I just finished the fourth draft of my debut novel, a thriller, 83,000 words. I found this site because I am seeking one or two long-term critique partners, and that is my main focus now. BUT, I am looking forward to finding my way around and getting involved. I live in the Ozark mountains of Northwestern Arkansas. I'm retired, and loving that I finally have ample time to write,

Re: The Introduction Thread --Aspiring Beta Reader

Post by BigSkyBeta » December 27th, 2021, 9:52 pm

Hello all,
I came to this site because would love to learn more about being a Beta reader. I'm an avid reader (aren't we all) but my true love is romance and fantasy novels. Reading is my escape from my cyber management job in the military. I would love to learn what authors are looking for in a Beta reader. Not sure if It matters but I hold a BS in Computer Info Sys and an MBA. Please reach out, I would love to be an asset to this community.

Hi Aspiring Beta Reader - I write romance and fantasy. What I would look for in a beta reader is someone who can spot plot holes, inconsistencies in the plot or character, and confusing sentences. Basically anything which stops a reader in their tracks and pulls them out of the story. I hope that helps.

I have a critique group which disbanded with covid and need readers to help with my manuscripts if you are interested. One is a romantic suspense and the other is a middle-grade/young adult fantasy. I could send a first chapter of either if you might be interested.

I'm also new to this forum and still figuring out how things work.

Hello everyone, I'm new here. My name is Bort Patgia (Pen name). My interest lies in video games, reading ebooks (mostly pirated, hahaha), and writing. I already have 3 manuscripts already finished, it just needs a clean flooring since I've been rejected more 20 times. Also, I am a 3rd year college majoring in BS Psychology. Should I include academic learning as parts of my interest? I feel like it supposed to be part of it. I hope I can make some friends here and yeah... :D :D :D :D

Heyo! I'm Daniel Catherine (Dani for short). I'm originally from Connecticut in the United States, but I now live in the state of Georgia. My favorite genres to write are superhero and supernatural stories, but I'm also working on a fantasy story and a dystopian future story. Yeah, that's a thing with me; I'm able to work on multiple WIPs (I currently have over ten). I'm looking for a critique partner to help with my dystopian future story. I'm more than happy to offer beta services in return! I'm here because I really want to hone my writing skills and finish at least five of my WIPs, and I definitely need help with both. I've rambled enough. Happy writing!

Wow - I was pleasantly delighted to see your kind message about myself. Thank you really much! I'm continuously battling to find the time and energy to write, I'm hoping to sign with an agency eventually, and I'm working to finish an outline for revisions to my newest book. Your feedback gave me the urge to work harder on the plan. Thank you very much!

Hello,
Just joined to get involved in some beta reading particularly in woman's historical/alternate history fiction, but would consider other genre as well. Look forward to reading some work in progress or whole manuscripts.
Hope to get to know some of you and your works in the near future.
