Beta Readers Needed!

Hi Everyone,

As you can see from the title of this post, I need your help. I need beta readers for an odd project. Amazon has this program called Kindle Worlds that allows writers to create stories set in various television shows or book series. I was intrigued by the idea of playing in someone else’s sandbox. I’ve had a long familiarity with fanfiction. You can even read some stuff I wrote a very long time ago here. So the idea of writing something and potentially selling it and whatnot sounded interesting. I looked at the list of properties available to play with and settled on Ravenswood. My reasoning was simple. It looked like something that was in my wheelhouse: A paranormal show centered on a bunch of high school students. And bonus, it was only one season long. Easy to watch all of it and get up to speed. I didn’t know what I was getting myself into. What I wrote is not a side story or an off shoot, I decided to write a continuation that tied up the central story of the show. I couldn’t have chosen a bigger challenge.

This has become a labor of love because I know not many will know the show or be interested, but if you did watch it and would like to help me out, send me an email indicating this. If you’ve never seen the show, but would be willing to read and give me feedback, I’d appreciate your help as well.

The novella is 38K words right now and has multiple POVs. I’ll need help making sure the POVs are consistent and that the plot makes sense. Ravenswood had a large central story/mystery that I’m trying to resolve. I need to know if my resolution makes sense.

You can send your emails here: sahunter@sahunter.net

Thanks!
