A call for Beta Readers
I am planning to release Unnaturals, a young adult SF dystopian novel, in December. The novel is already edited but can benefit from additional eyes helping track down the last typos. Other reader feedback is also welcome.
Anyone who feels like reading a new book in the next few weeks, and helping an author battle that word-munching, letter-scrambling elf that comes out at night to work on the book in secret, drop me a line.
In the perfect city of Lucasta, life is easy, bountiful, and completely arranged for everyone. New fashions and material goods abound. Everyone constantly communicates with hundreds of friends through their computing device, and pain, disease, and cruelty are fading into a distant memory. So is personal choice. Benevolent corporations watch over people as good parents. To the new generation, hate and prejudice are just a fairy tale.
Yet, teenage Meliora feels as if Lucasta is suffocating her. Always an unusual child, she discovers the dark secret of a world where secrets don't even exist any more.
But what can be wrong with a perfect world?
The answer is easy: everything. It is the next question that is hard. If a perfect world is wrong, what is a better alternative?
