Last night, I finally finished rereading through all of Death Defiant and editing it. All that’s left now is to put the edits onto the computer (I did everything by hand) and then get it out to beta readers.
Which brings me to you.
I need beta readers! And if you’re the kind of person who is interested in new takes on demons and angels and queer characters, you should keep reading and see if you’d be interested.
Death Defiant Blurb:
Cherifa has spent the last twenty years living safely in New York City, but when she gets hit by a car trying to save a stranger, she reveals her secret to the entire world: she can’t die.
Now the half-demons of her past have revealed themselves to the entire world, and they’ve put a price on Cheri’s head. Together with the woman she saved, Cheri will have to go on the run from humans and half-demons alike. However, the only safe place to go is down, straight into Hell.
If this sounds like something you might be willing to beta read, then here’s what I’m looking for. Be aware: you don’t need to fulfill all of these. However, if you think you’d be a good fit, then you should definitely let me know.
What I’m looking for:
- Attention to plot and character
- Someone either from the Middle East or familiar with Saudi Arabian culture
- Encouraging, but also critical
- Lover of fantasy
- Queer readers or readers interested in queer fiction
- Able to get the beta read MS back to me within 4 weeks
If this sounds like something you’d be interested in, please send me an email at reiring.2 at osu dot edu. I’ll send you the first three chapters for you to do a test read on, and if we mesh, I’ll provide you a copy of the entire manuscript.
I’m very excited about my first novel, and I hope you are, too! Thanks to anyone who offers to help.
