View Full Version : Seeking a Beta for a Tragicomic Western

03-01-2015, 02:45 AM
Hey all! I've finally decided to try and do something with a complete draft that I finished in 2013 but have absolutely no idea what to do with.

Paradise Falls, my 2013 NaNoWriMo project, is a Western of a sort that is very goofy and tongue-in-cheek but gradually darkens to a fairly serious level. It's a volatile mix of period-accurate stuff and deliberate anachronism, and far too long at 100,000 words.

Honestly, I'm not sure what needs to be done to take the next step with this thing; as such I need a stiff beta reading. I'm willing to beta read in turn, naturally, and as a former composition teacher I feel that I can offer some value there.

Here's the draft in GDocs if you're curious (https://docs.google.com/document/d/1vylQjDLY_-ZgiKK_hazt9yc3XqowfUFwLz-7Q0xX60E/edit?usp=sharing), and let me know if you are interested!
