Is there, by chance, anyone here who reads french fluently enough to beta my novel, Borgne-Roi? I'm looking for general feedback, not an indepth crit. You're allowed to be as harsh as you dare. It's a mainstream novel with a bit of sci-fi. Mature audience only, as a few scenes contain sex or violence.

Borgne-Roi has been revised a few times and is complete at 63'000 words.

French blurb follows.

Quand un cataclysme plonge l'humanité dans les ténèbres, qu'advient-il des rescapés? Franklin, jeune miraculé, met ses talents au service d'une communauté de survivants dans un monde dévasté. Menacé par les aspirations autoritaires de sa fiancée et d'un rival aveugle de naissance, Franklin parviendra-t-il à assurer un avenir aux siens sans renoncer à ses principes?

Interesting.

Are you able to beta english works yourself? I speak french pretty fluently, and with the exception of parviendra-t-il (which I figured out) i could read your blurb just fine.

If you don't get any hits, look me up. I might be willing to.

I read a lot of books in english, so I feel comfortable enough to beta any work you might have. I've found four beta readers on another forum, though, so I guess I should pass on your offer and have this thread closed.

Thanks for your interest and help.
