I’m searching for beta readers for a novella that’s around 23K. It doesn’t have a title just yet, but that might change when I have a more thorough idea of what I should title it. I’m willing to provide a google-doc link as I don’t plan to put it up on Wattpad (… I may upload it in the future), but it is complete. It’s kind of fantasy-adventure based, I’d say? It’s about a pirate who’s cursed to die in five years unless she gives up her heart, which she refuses to do. And so she goes about her life, getting closer with her crew and, as she reaches the five-year mark, she gets weaker and weaker. But it’s also about a girl growing up in the world, about magic, about a world of wonder. She isn’t a hero and probably isn’t a nice person, but she builds herself a life and a family (whether or not she notices it).
In essence, it’s about a pirate who gets cursed and does her best to live the rest of her life with no regret. And, in the end, curses are tricky things and hearts are even trickier and good endings aren’t always happily ever afters, but they can still be happy.
For payment, I don’t have much since I’m not definitely going to publish it (especially as I may end up doing drafts and whatnot). However, I can do a follow (although, I may accidentally unfollow in the future sometime). I can do a swap for editing/reviewing, but I’m not fantastic and I’d probably only do about 23K in return. However, we can discuss payment options and whatnot.
Thank you for reading this and feel free to reply on here or PM me on Wattpad (I’m under the same username).
