I am looking for someone who can critique my novel. It is more or less a story of some soldiers who are stationed in a country that resembles Iraq and their struggle against radical Islamic extremists. It is politically incorrect, extremely violent, and inappropriate. The novel is lengthy (200,000+ words) but fast-paced.

I am seeking a beta reader who is thoughtful, intelligent, and blunt. Please note that my last beta reader is facing life in prison after chopping up one of his friends, so I am looking for that rare sort of beta reader who is able to stomach violence while not necessarily carrying it out. Military credentials would be an added bonus.

Should you be interested, please send me a private message. Thanks.

I'm sorry I can't invest the time to be your beta reader, but it sounds like the story of your last beta reader could be your next book. An "axe murderer" who is the literary sort. Interesting.

You should NEVER post your e-mail in a forum! Spambots can pick it up, and the last thing the world needs is more bandwidth-clogging spam.
