Due to attrition, overwork and new babies, my posse of beta readers has dwindled to a meager few. Sadly, as much as I hoped they were telling the truth when they said ask again next month, they weren’t. Anyway, I am looking for Beta Readers. I don’t care if you’re not a grammar whiz. or a literary god/goddess. If you love books and words and M/M romance and are willing to tell me why you love/hate what I’ve written, let me know. If you even might be interested, take a look at Measuring the Rein (HERE) and see the kind of stuff I write. Well, it’s actually not the best thing I’ve ever written, but I was overambitious on a short deadline. It needed to marinate in a drawer for three months before I edited/rewrote it. I think the bones and language are okay, but it probably needed to be tightened by about 20%. Anyway, I’m still proud of it and I’ll probably revisit it sometime in the future.
In case you stumbled here on accident: I write gay male romance, some of it pretty explicit but not extremely so. It’s romance, not porn. If that’s not something you’re going to be comfortable with, being a beta reader for me is probably not for you.
