We’ll be needing beta readers soon.
Yes, that’s right: beta readers, plural. We’ve decided it’s not fair to LR to make him shoulder the responsibility alone. Also, we want to know how readers unfamiliar with the author’s other works will react to this story.
But wait! Before you volunteer, you should know a thing or two about this novel… and about the amount of work involved in beta reading: Project Brimstone is contemporary science fiction and runs about 70K words, so reading won’t take too long. However, I have a list of about forty questions I need beta readers to answer, such as, ‘Are there any parts you think should be condensed or deleted?’ and, ‘Could you relate to the main character?’ Volunteers to beta read must be willing to answer these questions.
Here’s the (unofficial) blurb:
Major John Michael Harrison, US SOCOM, discovers a dark secret: an invasion from another Earth, a world like yet unlike his own. An Earth where resources are so scarce that its people are willing to raid other worlds to attain them, releasing enhanced bioweapons with no remorse for the people who die.
Thus starts a war like none before. A war between worlds, between universes. Two USAs waging war against each other through a series of raids and counter-raids.
Major Harrison is at the tip of the spear point taskforce assigned to stop the war at all costs. Harrison volunteers to take a nuclear weapon deep into the heart of the enemy’s defenses and end the war once and for all.
Harrison escapes the blast, and there his odyssey begins.
