Looking for beta readers. Fantasy Fiction.
« on: July 27, 2017, 12:29:46 PM »
As the title suggests, I'm looking for beta readers for a fantasy fiction novel I'm writing.  Before I continue, I would like to say that the novel, although not a religious one, is loosely based on Christianity - think Supernatural.

Reason I mention this is because a good friend of mine, who happens to be extremely religious, said she wouldn't have read the work(or actually would had stopped reading it) had it not been from me. Needless to say she did offer great feedback.

To clarify, I don't think, in any way, shape of form, that I disrespect Christianity in the realm of the story but I can see how a deeply religious person could find some issues with it. So in that regard, please take that into consideration if you are interested in reading the material.

With that out of the way, the file is currently 52 pages long  (Word doc, so longer in printed/ebook form). This is the first half of the story. I'm currently working on the second half, which I hope to finish by the end of the year (hopefully way sooner). I can provide the file via email. I may be able to get the file into a Kindle/PlayBook format too or .PDF file. I would love ANY feedback. Good or bad, it doesn't matter. Pretty please?

Either pm me or respond here and I can pm you. No need to provide emails in the comments for security/safety reasons.

Thanks

Sure - I'll be happy to be one of your beta readers. I love both Sci-Fi and Fantasy.
Religion plays a big part in the real world, so it's always interesting to see how a Fantasy writer will spin a story within that context.
PM'd you.

I would like to read it. I love fantasy. I so often feel annoyed that potentially great stories trip up in certain ways that really lessen them. Like really predictable cliche's or characters that are not even thinking about an obvious solution to their problem and just run around reactively. Would love to have a chance to give some feedback.
