    I am looking for beta readers for general feedback but also focuses on worldbuilding and descriptions. This is a YA contemporary fantasy/supernatural with heavy romance.

    Albino teen Jaclyn lives a nocturnal life. One night she does something she’s never done before—go for a run down the dirt road she and her parents live on. She stops when she hears a man singing with a voice that seems to enchant her. After that, she feels compelled to return and meet the first person in her life who is not her parents—a man known only as Amara. But Amara has a secret; he is not a simple mortal, as Jaclyn first believes.

    After discovering the depth of her relationship with Amara, Jaclyn’s parents cart her off to a boarding school for nocturnal beings. Now in amongst vampires, werewolves, and other supernatural creatures, she remains the sole mortal. However, someone within the school has begun tormenting her. To what end? She doesn’t know. But truths are about to come to light, and her life will never be the same again.

    I've been working on this story for a while, but haven't gotten to finish it. I thought I'd have some beta readers look at it over any inconsistencies that I might have with this draft. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    This is a young adult fiction book that assumes an interesting take on the life of teenagers who are also third-culture kids. Specifically, one teenager who is struggling with lack of friends, identifying with two different cultures, and learning to stand up for herself. I have the whole book written, but I want to make sure that the first half is gripping, cohesive, and just generally interesting enough to read.

    This is my take of a Romanian myth/superstition. It was so fun to write and add my own twist, but I've only had a couple friends and family read it. I am looking for any and all feedback! What works, what doesn't, what could be done better, punctuation/grammar/spelling errors that I'm sure I've missed while editing. I am hoping to publish this so I appreciate ALL feedback! I tend to classify this as supernatural/paranormal thriller.

    The annual kingdom summit was cursed. For the past thirteen years, the people of Dewar breathed easy knowing that the gathering that took the lives of their beloved king and queen and led to the deaths of thousands of civilians would never happen again. The disappearance of a local woman sparks a chain of events that leads the reclusive king to announce the revival of the summit. And this time, he will be opening it up to kingdoms on the surrounding planets.

    There is a romance and whodunit subplot, and it contains adult content (murder, sex, language).

    When demons return to the Seven Kingdoms Spira--a ruthless killer and forgotten queen--must put her hatred for humans behind her and fight the will of Death to saver her friends and home, even if it means killing the love of her life.
    My novel is a young adult fantasy. I'm looking for constructive criticism about the story structure, characters, and overall language quality.
