Survival fic reviewer?
Hi guys. Sorry I haven't been around much. Got caught up in another big dev project that sucked away all my time. The only good part was the paycheck at the end. lol. Anyhow, I've got a question. I've got one book currently out with two more in the pipes which are classified as survival fic. IE, the 2012, TEOTWAWKI, lost in the woods, killer plague, etc, etc, type stuff. In turn I'd like to get it reviewed by someone, but being a mostly sci-fi author, I'm not sure who would take or be able to properly review the book. Anyone know of someone who would review books like that, and maybe (actually preferably) has an audience looking for that genre? I'd like to target the book to the survival fic lovers if possible via a reviewer who works in that area.

I am unfortunately not qualified, neither by language nor experience, but AFAIR kindlekitten and DarkScribe have reported outdoor experience in other threads.
We have a lot of ex-mils, mounties etc. You'll find just the right ones on MR.

I'd try to make contact with survivalist communities. Try the living members of this list or their blogs & forums -- http://www.survival-spot.com/surviva...of-survivalism . I would have liked to met Colonel Cooper myself, having enjoyed his writings.

I would not be interesting in editing (I have enough urgent work already) but I would be happy to read and make brief suggestions if appropriate.

as has been mentioned, I am ex-military, was married to an Airborne Ranger, and son was a Navy SEAL. I have extensive SAR experience as well. I grew up in Colorado and NEw Mexico, and my Dad was so paranoid about the inevitable invasion by the Soviets that he had caches of food and weapons stored in the mountains. also, I'm a long time fan of post apocalyptic sci-fi. would be happy to give a look see!
