Beta Read My Fantasy Novel

10


10 for fulfilling my request - Virtual OK - Posted Jun 09, 2018

I'm looking for a fantasy reader with a critical eye and a progressive mindset to help me troubleshoot my story. The main areas I'm looking for feedback on include...

*pacing - does the story move too fast or too slow overall? Does it drag in places? Does it move too fast in some areas you'd like more detail?

*characters - is the main character relatable? Interesting? Are the main characters fleshed out enough? Are the secondary characters fleshed out enough? Are their motivations all clear and strong enough?

*plot - is the plot interesting? Do all the plot points make sense? Does the plot flow logically and consistently from start to finish? Are there any major plot holes?

*setting - does the setting make sense? Do you understand how the setting has contributed to the events in the story?

*style/description - is the exposition too heavy-handed in places? Not heavy enough? Are the descriptions effective or distracting? Are the descriptions too sparse or not sparse enough?

So far, only one other person has looked at my story, so it is likely quite rough around the edges. It is currently in its third draft.

About Eleanor Wallis

I am a 27-year-old fantasy illustrator and writer born in Australia, raised in Italy and living in Denmark. I garden, read and crochet in my spare time. I make my own oils for oil burners and I ma...ke candles with those oils. I enjoy walking in the forests near my house and photographing the numerous Danish bogs (while not getting too close, of course - Bogman, anyone?). The Danish landscape provides a lot of inspiration for my stories and art, though unfortunately it is quite flat here so there aren't many rivers or mountains. I live with my spouse and our daughter about an hour's train ride from Copenhagen. She is already fluent in Danish, while us two adults struggle to make even basic sentences for now, but we're learning, slowly. We moved to Europe as my spouse is a Lead Games Engineer and prospects are slim in Australia, though the industry is growing. show more
