I’m getting relatively close to finished with a first draft of an urban fantasy novel with strong LGBTQ themes, as well as themes of diversity and general geekery.
I’m not 100% sure of exactly when I’ll be done: perhaps 3-6 weeks. I’m hoping to find beta readers who are interested this genre. It will be my first novel, and there is no publisher lined up waiting to publish it, so feedback will be very helpful in determining what’s working and what’s not; what people enjoy and what they don’t enjoy; if anything related to diversity and inclusivity didn’t come come across as I’d hoped; and so on.
Feel free to share this, or even paste it elsewhere, I don’t mind. If someone expresses interest, just forward them to me. If you’re interested, please email me, message me, or contact me through this site.
As to compensation, I’m not exactly rolling in riches, but I can offer two things. If and when the novel gets published, anyone who is a beta reader will be thanked at the beginning. In addition, I will be happy to act as a beta reader in return for anyone who participates, or to act as a sounding board/consultant for RPG products [to a reasonable extent] (for people who need help developing an RPG or refining their idea). I am certainly far more qualified an RPG designer, developer, and editor than I am as a novelist.
