Im nearly done with an edit of my novella (30k words roughly 50 pages in google docs) and am looking for a few beta readers for critique.
quick overview (not the official blurb as that isnt done yet)
A little girl goes missing, last suspected playing in an old heirloom wooden box. The police are of little help in the search for Grace. The family begins to uncover strange things about the box and must learn it's secrets to find their daughter.
some notes on beta reading:
and questions to think about as you read:
Do you like the title? Does it fit?
Do you like the cover? Does it fit?
Does it feel like the right length? (some sections too long/or short)
Does the pacing work? (too slow, too quick)
Do you believe the characters? Do they feel different from each other? Can you describe the MC(s)?
Did you like the ending? Was it satisfying?
Did you feel 'sucked in' to the book? Or did anything pull you back out? Did you feel like you were reading or that you were part of the action?
What was/were the most memorable moment(s)?
What were your favorite part(s) and least favorite?
I will create a google docs document for each beta reader so that you can highlight or make whatever notes you like right on the story.
5mill pbs to each completed beta read :)
its not ready *quite* yet as im still finishing edits on the last couple chapters but should be up after the weekend.

Whiskey - I closed it for this one, but I am starting an edit on another story - a (slightly longer) thriller. I will keep this post saved for future contacts - either for future stories or if people end up having to back out. I am honestly surprised (and overjoyed) at the amount of interest :)
