If you're interested in being a beta reader for any of my writing projects, then this is the place to apply for current or future consideration.  Approved applicants will then have access to the online beta content distribution and questionnaire system, where they can apply for specific projects that are currently active.  New active projects will be announced in places like our email newsletter, Facebook, and Discord.

Now considering applications for the sequel to Murdoch's Choice!

Applications for Heroes of Time: The First Ethereal are currently under consideration.
Although, I am not actively seeking additional beta readers at this time.

If you are interested in Chrono Trigger: The Hero Rising, please check for the latest notes about beta readers.

For "Heroes of Time," some extra consideration might be given to applicants to whom any of the following apply:

* Avid reader of other novels in the sci-fi/fantasy genre (please give examples);
* Expert or keen knowledge of Shakespearean or King James type archaic English;
* Expert or keen knowledge of Scottish dialect;
* Anyone who is a professional in literature, writing, editing, publishing, literary agency, etc.

Any of the above or other outstanding credentials should be noted, in detail, on the application.

Even if you do not meet the above criteria, you are welcome to create your account and apply for future consideration.

  • I acknowledge that I will submit a completed Beta Reader Questionnaire to the author.
  • I will endeavor, to the best of my ability, to complete the reading and questionnaire within 60 days.
  • I will keep the author updated about my progress, especially if my reading takes longer than 60 days.
  • I agree to receive email communications from the author related to beta reading.
  • I acknowledge that this novel is written in English, that this application is submitted in English, and that all feedback will be provided in English.  Furthermore, English is my first language, or my abilities to read and write in English are at least equivalent to someone having English as his/her first language.
  • I understand and acknowledge that no compensation is being offered for participating as a beta reader.
  • I understand that the author may choose to accept or deny my application to be a beta reader for any reason. If rejected, your interest is still really appreciated and there are no hard feelings!
