So I'm looking for beta-readers for my early draft. So for teasing without revealing too much:
The MC is a K9 Handler, and the trope is currently the number one favorite on RoyalRoad by a long shot. Put the latter with the former, and you already have the title!
For beta-readers, I'm searching for specifics demographics to call me on my bullshit, but I only expect one candidate to fill up one profile:
-One grammar fascist Native American who is not opposed to using the standard units of measurement outside of dialogs and who is very understanding and patient about my poor English.
-Someone who is working with dogs every day.
-Someone living in Montana to call me on my bullshit if my research had not been good enough.
-Some hardcore nerd who enjoys reading tabletop and videogame rulebooks for fun or reading litrpg and pointing out inconsistencies.
Beta-readers will get:
-to read before anyone else (no kidding!)
-to get mentioned in credits forever
-to get their Royal Road novel advertised in Author's notes.
-to get an offer of extended friendship
-And my eternal gratitude!
I usually use discord and google docs for collaborative work, though other tools might be on the table.
Oh, this is also a great chance for me to promote another small author's work. I gave some constructive feedback in comments on Saf's story called Song of Ember here, if you want to see what my feedback is like. It's also a fun story if you want to give it a read.
