Default Final proof & edit of my book is done

I am thinking of asking for a few people to read it and comment, which would include things like watching for typos, plot inconsistencies, and so on.

If you'd be interested, please let me know here. I will likely choose a half dozen or so people to do this.

Here's a little about the book:

Good point. I hadn't considered that. But then again, this is sci-fi, not romance, though there is an element of romance in it.

Love,

It sounds an interesting read and I would definitely love to read it.
Sadly though I think you would be better chosing the people who have the most time on their hands to not only finish the book in a timely fashion but to be able to give you (also in a timely) fashion, the feedback you need

I would help you but my eyes blur and my thoughts wander at long posts made here. I don't have the attention span I used to.

Good luck though. It sounds like a great plot and I wish you success with it.

Sent to Brig, Kavik, Luc, and Morgaine. And Sansarya, of course, who will read this damn thing whether she wants to or not.

This is your NaNoWriMo book? Cool! You made a cover and a cover-synopsis an' everything!! I was thankful to get down 50K words of straight ASCII.

(I would definitely ask for a copy, except I never seem to finish books anymore, so I probably would not be able to give you useful feedback this century...)

Update: I have gotten some excellent suggestions from more than one person and I am doing a revision which adds a number of subplots to the book. Please, however, those of you who have not yet finished it, feel free to continue reading and supply any feedback that you like.

When the revision I am presently working on is complete, I will re-poll you to inquire as to whether you'd like to read the revised version.

Thanks!

Do you have a publisher? I would love to read it,, but would prefer to be actually be a paying customer and purchase the book once its out in print.

Good luck to you!!!

Thanks. No, no publisher yet; I kind of got sidetracked on the second draft with all the things that went on last month (read: appendicitis). I plan to get back on it ASAP.

Sure, but you know how Hollywood always fucks up books. No guarantees on how it'll come out.
