ALWAYS Looking for Beta Readers

Due to attrition, overwork and new babies, my posse of beta readers has dwindled to a meager few. Sadly, as much as I hoped they were telling the truth when they said ask again next month, they weren’t. Anyway, I am looking for Beta Readers. I don’t care if you’re not a grammar whiz. or a literary god/goddess. If you love books and words and M/M romance and are willing to tell me why you love/hate what I’ve written, let me know. If you even might be interested, take a look at Measuring the Rein (HERE) and see the kind of stuff I write. Well, it’s actually not the best thing I’ve ever written, but I was overambitious on a short deadline. It needed to marinate in a drawer for three months before I edited/rewrote it. I think the bones and language are okay, but it probably needed to be tightened by about 20%. Anyway, I’m still proud of it and I’ll probably revisit it sometime in the future.

In case you stumbled here on accident: I write gay male romance, some of it pretty explicit but not extremely so. It’s romance, not porn. If that’s not something you’re going to be comfortable with, being a beta reader for me is probably not for you.

Begin at the Beginning

With Google’s draconian changes to Blogger’s content policies regarding mature, adult, explicit or pornographic content, I’ve decided to jump ship and start over at WordPress. Writing M/M, romance or otherwise, I will inevitably and probably innocently run afoul of the new rules sooner or later so here we are.

Being nearly unpublished, I’m not sure what I’ll be posting but you never know when I’ll have stuff to say. Some of it will be worth the effort and some won’t but it will always be honest and from the heart.

I will take this opportunity to promote my Don’t Read In The Closet 2014: Love’s Landscapes story from last year — Measuring the Rein. The M/M Romance Group over at Goodreads does an amazing job producing this HUGE event. Each year about 200 free stories are written, collected, edited, and produced by volunteers. Last year that totaled almost 5 MILLION words. Amazing.

Here’s the preview trailer…
