    Mornin Gents and Gentesses,

    I wrote a short story recently that I’d like to find some beta readers for.

    It’s a slice of life story as well as inspiration fiction in the broad sense of the term and kiiindaa romance, depending on how you look at it.

    Its length is 8,900 words.

    Let me know if you are interested. ๐Ÿ™‚

    @daeus 8,900 words? Do you have a deadline?

    @perfectfifths I don’t have an exact deadline, but if anyone could do it in about a week, that would be optimal.

    @daeus a week you say? Is that the maximum deadline?

    @daeus Hmm… I might be able to do it (I find I often underestimate how quick I can do these things). I’d just like to ask about content, if there’s possibly anything some people might not be comfortable with?

    @salome01w4g I don’t have a maximum deadline. A week is just my preferred deadline. Within two weeks is not unreasonable to me. However, if I happen to get a lot of volunteers, I would naturally prefer those who can get it done within a week.

    @daeus two weeks would probably be better for me but. I’d love to do it, who knows maybe I’ll have a lot of time and get it done fast. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Content. No language. No sex. Violence: a general description of Aztec sacrifices. Description is not graphic, but if just the idea of human sacrifices makes you sick, then you could have problems with it. One guy has a vision in which he is lacerating himself, though there is not a lot of detail in that part.

    Otherwise, this book can be intense in parts.

    That’s it. It’s really not a very graphic book.

    @daeus depends on what kinda critique youโ€™re looking for. Would it be basically the same stuff as we did with Fools in the Darkness?
