After several months, I have found that Area51 was an interesting idea destroyed by too many questions that should never have been asked. Since there doesn't seem to be a way to stop being a member, I'll just stop answering questions.

Eventually this site will die. I won't miss it.

I suggested working the first three chapters because this is what MANY agents want first. THAT is what they will read. Making betas plow though chapters that might never sell is not "endearing" unless you want to pay them. If you want to work yourself and betas to death- be my guest. Most agents start with the synopsis and either ask for more or reject you then. (My experience. Yours?)

Don't even bother beta until an agent is interested.
