The authors were kind enough to list the beta team in the acknowledgements. I didn't recognize of the other beta readers from here at WdC and a search of surnames gave no matches. Was anyone else here involved in the book?
It's an interesting read and it was fun to be involved.
I'm a pantser. I usually have a rough outline and my main characters in mind, and a fair idea of the ending I want (that doesn't always work out, sometimes characters have minds of their own!) but then I sit down and let the words flow. It usually works fairly well for me and I can do up to a several hundred words an hour with minimal editing.
With this one, I'm sort of stuck at only 300 words. It doesn't want to follow the outline, but it doesn't want to go anywhere else, which tells me that this probably isn't the story I want to tell. Same thing happened with my first draft.
I hope a few of my fans can take a quick skim of this and give me a few thoughts, either where this might go or why it doesn't seem to be going anywhere. Or is it just that this is my first real try at a dystopian theme and I need to dig into the genre more?
