Serious Readers Wanted

I just finished putting in the last chapter into Regresser's Evolution. I think I have improved it a lot. However, I think I can improve it more. After a lot of crap was cut and good stuff was added, the current word count of the novel is right at 57,000 in a prologue and fourteen chapters.

I am looking for a couple of serious readers to read the novel and give me some good, constructive feedback by chapter. I will be giving you the whole thing at once. All 145 single spaced pages of it. I don't want to hear, "I loved it! You're wonderful." I want to hear, "I loved this part of it. However, I think this part was a bit weak/contrived/etc and could be improved by doing X. Plus, stylistically, I liked/hated this."

mrissa? Are you still interested? I know you said, a long time ago, that you would like to be part of the reread again. I don't know if you still have the time or interest.

Also, I'm looking for people who do not live near me and that I do not see on a regular basis. This is mostly because I'm a needy writer and I'll be constantly looking at you for approval. I don't want to get on people's nerves.
