Painting by Dean Cornwell, 1924.
Right now I’m in a bit of a lull between projects and I need a hand with something. Maybe I’ve put out this request before, but I don’t think so.
My beta crew is awesome, I’ve received a fair bit of feedback on my latest manuscript, the unnamed alternate history. But there’s something missing.
I’d like feedback from women. This is important to me for a number of reasons.
First, it would be stupid to ignore the feedback of a bit over half of the human race.
Second, there is a woman’s POV in the book, I’d like to get it right. She’s an important character; as I wrote I liked her more and more. Am curious if her voice, tone, is realistic.
Finally, even though this is a war novel based in an era when war was primarily a male occupation, women and thoughts of women are never far from the concerns of the Joes in the book. Let me return to the first point. I risk ignoring half of the human race at my peril.
So I won’t.
This is a specific appeal- I’d very much like to have some female betas.
