Hello all you Sparta experts out there,

I've written a historical fantasy novel that features vignettes of different time periods. Each era I write about is essentially a short story connected by a central fantastical thread. The second era I feature takes place in Sparta. Although, it has fantasy elements, the historical details are well-researched. If anyone would be willing to read the 19,124 words (which includes the first chapter needed to orient the reader) and let me know how I did in regards to authenticity and details I would really appreciate it. I'm not looking for a line by line beta, more an overall plausibility and fact check, and I'm in my final revisions.

Please email me if you are interested or would like to know more.

Thanks,

Lauren

I've received two amazing critiques from ancient Egypt experts and it has been invaluable. Possibly there are no Spartan 'experts' available so I would be just as appreciative if anyone knowledgeable in Spartan culture would be willing to beta read my partial.

Thanks,

Lauren

Hi Lauren,

I'm by no means an expert, but I did some study of the archaic Spartans as part of my degree. I'd be willing to take a look.

I'll pm you my email add.

Does multiple watching of 300 count?

I'll take any willing beta reader if you're offering :)
