I’m looking for Beta readers for my latest novel, which is the third part in the Riverhill Trilogy. Although it’s part of a trilogy, it can be read as a standalone novel. The book is a mystery based crime thriller, and the Riverhill Trilogy fits into a sub-genre known as grit-lit so there is a certain amount of violence, drugs, bad language etc. Here is the blurb to give you more of a feel of what the novel is about:
Rita has been avoiding Manchester; it brings back too many bad memories. She still has harrowing flashbacks of ruthless gangster, Leroy, and the death of a loved one. It takes the wedding of her brother, John, to persuade her to return. She agrees, on the condition that she steers clear of the Riverhill estate and Leroy’s family.
When her son, Daniel, is placed in danger, Rita is lured back to the Riverhill where she confronts those she believes responsible. She receives support from an unlikely source who promises information subject to terms. Realising that she needs help to act on that information, Rita turns to her brother, John.
But John works for the law. And he will have to go against everything he believes in if he agrees to embark on a maverick mission to help save his sister’s son.
You can also check out the first two books in the trilogy, ‘Slur’ and ‘A Gangster’s Grip’. Here are the links: http://viewbook.at/Slur and http://viewbook.at/GangstersGrip.
I hope to have the book ready to send off to beta readers in the next couple of weeks. If you are interested, please drop me an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org.

The trilogy is nearly complete Heather, congratulations. I will email you. Have a good weekend.
Thank you Guy. I’m looking forward to finishing it. 🙂
Congratulations on getting this far Heather, very impressive. Unfortunately I’m unable to take on any beta reading at the moment otherwise I shall never get going on my own writing and that’s going slowly enough as it is. Hope you get some willing volunteers 🙂
Thank you for considering it anyway, Georgia. I’ve got a few lined up. Now I just need to finish the draft. Good luck with your own writing. I can’t wait to find out what you’re working on next. 🙂
Hi Heather, I too hope you get some willing volunteers. It certainly sounds like an interesting read and I wish you every success with it.
Thank you very much, Barbara. My manuscript is now in the hands of some excellent beta readers, and I’m looking forward to their feedback. 🙂
