Seeking Beta Readers for The Storm and the Darkness

I am looking for beta readers for The Storm and the Darkness, the next novel in The House of Crimson and Clover series.

If you’ve never been a beta reader, it is a bit of work. Much like an editor, a beta reader goes through the book and looks for continuity errors, places where the story gets boring, other story problems, etc. Essentially, you are approaching the book from the mind of a fresh reader and giving detailed thoughts of your reading experience. It doesn’t require spelling/grammar corrections, however you’re free to call me out if I overuse a word or have too many sentences that start or end with a preposition 😛

It requires a read of the entire book (although I will take “partial” beta readers as well), and the deadlines are fairly aggressive (3-4 weeks max).

No, it doesn’t pay (sorry!), but it’s an opportunity to be part of the creative process for the book, and you’ll get a shout-out in the acknowledgements when I publish it.

If anyone is interested, you can reply here. It will probably be March(ish) timeframe when I am ready to send the book out to you for review.
