Hey all! I recently finished what I hope will be the final draft of my epic kaiju novel, In the Shadow of Extinction. However, I’ve decided that I want to get a few more last minute opinions on the story from beta readers before releasing it to the public.
So, what I’m doing today is I’m reaching out to ask if you’d be interested in being a beta reader for my novel? Being a beta reader simply means reading my book and telling me what you think at the end. I’ve even written up a handy little questionnaire for you. I want your honest opinions! Our talks will be private and respectful. In the end, I’ll add your name into the special thanks section of the book!
In the Shadow of Extinction is a globetrotting sci-fi adventure that spans over fifteen years. When kaiju rise from below to take over the world, humanity’s efforts to fight them back are undone by war and divided interests. When the dust clears, it’s a world of man no longer. A diverse cast of characters—heroes and villains alike—must learn to survive in the shadows of the leviathans that now rule over the earth.
The book is complete at approximately 190,000 words. I will provide the novel in your favorite ebook format (and help you load the file onto your device if need be!). I’d like beta readers to finish the book and get back to me by October 15th, which gives readers about seven weeks with the book. If it takes you longer — or if you decide that the novel is just not for you — that’s okay, simply let me know.
If you’re interested, please contact me and provide me with your name, age, gender, favorite genres to read, and reason you're interested in being a beta reader. First time beta readers are fine! The book is only available in English, so being an English reader is a necessity, I'm afraid.
I would love to have your readership. Thank you for your time!
