Beta readers wanted
« on: September 04, 2021, 04:21:52 AM »
Looking for beta readers for my episodic shorts (currently 40). No deadline.
Genre: Slice of life/dramedy (Young Adult)
Summary- 5 superteen nationalists (each from a different country) go about their daily lives and struggles.
Notes: Structure is strange and out of order due to each 'chapter' being a different episode/story instead of one continuous book and having five protagonists. Will eventually be an actual action-dramedy book series, these episodes are backstory for such.
Warning: Use of offensive humour, strong language, mentions/depictions of child abuse, political topics/controversial opinions.

Wow, over a hundred views but zero replies. I started in the Welcome forum with a hello and question about beta readers and also got zero replies. Maybe this isn't a good forum for alpha or beta readers. Did you ever find a forum on the web where you DID get some replies? If so I'd like to hear where. Thanks...

No, it's not. I had to pay for beta readers, but not bad prices on Fiver, and you can get some really good ones.
