Want to be one of the first people to read Submerged? Well, now is your chance. I'm looking for a beta reader for Submerged.
Here's what Submerged is about:
Time in which I'd need you to read the manuscript: You'll have the entire month of November to go through the MS.All it takes is one spark to ignite a revolution…After a mysterious virus makes its way into the United States, the Government demands that states seal themselves off from one another and do their best to protect their surviving residents. When Florida is bordered off from the surrounding states, Taylen Fincher, a seventeen-year-old girl with a yearning for her former life, finds herself wondering how much of what they’ve been told is true.When Troum took control of the state, he told the residents that the other states had fallen to the virus and that he wouldn’t allow the same thing to happen to them. But Taylen doesn’t believe it. She insists that there is still life outside of the state, and she is going to do whatever it takes to prove it… but her actions will cost her more than she ever expected.Troum kidnaps Taylen’s sister, Penelope, in hopes of coaxing her into behaving – into being a submissive resident, much like the others. But Taylen isn’t one to give in that easily.Eager to rescue her sister, Taylen will set out on an adventure that’ll force her to open her heart to the unexpected and to uncover secrets that will change everything.…but sooner or later, the spark must be diminished.
What I'm looking for in a beta reader: If you've been a beta reader before, that's definitely a plus. I need someone who can tell me when the pacing is off, where there are plot-holes, etc. Basically: if I screwed up somewhere, I need you to be willing to point it out for me. I need you to help me pin-point any errors in the MS before I resume querying this December.
Note: Submerged is a stand-alone YA dystopian novel.
