I’m looking for a beta reader to relay the ups and downs of my story. I want a beta-reader who will focus on the characters, how invested they are in the story, how they feel about the plot, and whether or not they even want to continue reading. If you are partway through and determine you aren’t interested, let me know so that I can edit and fix that! I’d rather you tell me you’re not interested than just disappear.
Payment: I am willing to read a story that is the same length as mine (about 95k words) OR to read multiple stories that add up to the length of mine! I have cleared some of my schedule for this, so it’s my hope that the other person involved can do the same. I don’t need feedback within a week or anything, but I would like to move at similar paces.
Logline: When the most feared witch in the desert loses a magical artifact, an ill-fated assassin must track down the ancient spellbook-- or else she could lose more than the freedom she aches for.
Title: The Book of Sand
Genre: Fantasy / Adventure
Description: Aumee is an assassin who works for the most feared witch in the Waystland. When she discovers that the witch plans on selling her off in marriage, Aumee realizes she must find a way to bargain for her own freedom. It just so happens that one of the witch’s informants made a mistake and lost track of an extremely important ancient spellbook. Aumee makes a deal: if she can track down the spellbook and return it to the witch within the month, she’ll be free.
The only problem is that on her way to retrieving the spellbook she becomes close with those around her and realizes that her own freedom can cost the freedom and lives of so many others.
