Beta Readers

I have completed three passes on A Queen’s Edict, and now feel comfortable having beta readers take a look at it, before sending the manuscript out for editing. The story currently stands at 100,000 words, and I would like feedback in a month, if possible.

If you are interested in reading it, please get in touch with me ASAP. I already have one beta reader lined up, but could use feedback from another one or two people.

When reading, I would ask you to keep track of things that worked for you, and things that didn’t. Don’t worry, I’m under no delusions that it’s a perfect story, and this is the best time to find things that need tweaking, before it heads off to the editor. Honesty is the best policy, so I’m not looking for someone who will read it and just say, “It’s great!”

If it had a movie rating, I’d probably say it’s PG-13, same as my other books. Some violence, sexual stuff is alluded to and not shown, LGBTQ+ themes. You don’t have to have read my first series to jump into this one. It’s 400 years in the future, so almost everything’s fresh.

You can either get in touch with me through social media (MeWe…I’m no longer on Facebook or Twitter), or with a comment on this post (unless I have to close it due to spam bots, like all my other posts).
