Looking for Beta Readers

Friday, 17 August 2018

Interested in being a beta reader for my new detective/urban fantasy novel?

The book follows the adventures of Danesh Shahzan, an operative in the Office of the Witchfinder General, an arm of the British government dedicated to protecting the public from all manner of supernatural threats.

Here's the working blurb for the book:

Danesh is an acolyte in the Office of the Witchfinder General, a shadowy arm of the British government fighting threats to the realm from the magical and the unnatural.

When a murder takes place in Cardiff, the victim’s eyes removed but nothing else taken from him, Danesh and his colleagues are called in to help. It soon becomes clear the killings are the work of magical forces. Danesh is thrown into the pursuit of the killers.

But then he learns something about himself that he can never admit to the people he works with…

The novel is around 90K long. I'm still working on it and plan to have a completed draft ready to go by mid-September 2018. I’m looking for honest, critical feedback which I’ll use to guide my final revision prior to publication or submission of the novel to agents. All selected beta readers will receive a free digital copy of the draft manuscript, along with an accompanying questionnaire (which won't be too long, I promise). Completed questionnaires will be due 30 days later.

All readers who complete the questionnaire by the deadline will be credited by name in the acknowledgements section of the book – if they so wish – of the final published book.

Interested? The sign-up form is here.

Many thanks!
