Beta Read My Fantasy Novel
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.
