Wanted; Beta readers

Goal accomplished:  Editing of "To Love Without Hope".

Wanted:  Beta readers

How many:  2-3

Well, I have spent the last three days, eating, sleeping, breathing and editing my novel and I am quite happy with the way that it turned out.  I added a scene or two and fixed all of those glaring mistakes, though I'm not perfect and probably missed a few still.  The ending still could probably use a little more, but for this round of editing, I can say that I am happy with it. :)

Now, I am searching for 2-3 people that would be willing to give me a critique of the novel.  It would be nice if the person would actually normally read some young adult fiction and are comfortable with Christian fiction.

But that's not all, I am willing to provide a little compensation for your time, along with an exchange.  A $5 gift card for!  I know that that is not much, but there would also be a possibility of me reading something for you and beta reading if you would like down the line.

DISCLAIMER:  Anyone that receives a copy of my manuscript, will not share it with others without my permission or make copies of it and post it anywhere online or email to others.  This is my unpublished work and I would like it protected.  "Keep it safe, keep it secret." -Gandalf (The Lord of the Rings)

So, if you would be interested, just leave your email address below and maybe a little about your history with this.  I would be very thankful and grateful!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!


  1. I haven't had the chance to look at your MS yet, but I promise I will do it soon! In the meantime I've given you a couple awards!

  2. I'd love to, but unfortunately I'm completely snowed under right now! Best of luck with it though x

  3. Hi Krista. Good luck with the search for beta readers.

  4. @Jen - Thank you for the awards! :) If you would like to read the whole thing, I'd be very willing to share it with you.

    @Christine - This is actually the one that you already read. :) I tried to use some of your suggestions and edit it. I'm done now.

    @Cheryl - Hi! Thank you!
