Nocturna League #5 is nearly done - A call for beta readers!

Good day to you,
Progress with Nocturna League: The Black Eye has been progressing swimmingly. I'm over 70k words on the project so far, and the story is reaching its climax. By the end of February (if not much sooner) I'll have a completed manuscript on my hands, and will need fresh pairs of eyes to look it over and comment about the quality of the story, the narration, the characters, and the experience as a whole wrapped up in a pretty bow.
If you're interested in being one of the very first to see the manuscript, read on.
As a beta reader you'll be doing things like:
-reading an unreleased novel for fun
-finding out things in the story that aren't fun and telling me
-giving me ideas of things that might be more fun

And as for things you won't need to do:
-spelling and grammar checks
-spending hours editing the flow of the manuscript
-crying over your keyboard (unless its from a super sad scene, maybe)

So basically, you get to do the fun parts! Don't worry about the lower-order stuff, I'll take care of all that when the time comes.
What I expect from you is to read the novel within a couple weeks, and then email me with your feedback. You can be detailed or prompt, but I do want some kind of reflection on the novel to draw from.
If you're interested, just email me at kellr.inkston@gmail.com, comment on this post, or post on the facebook group.
I hope to hear from you soon,
Kell Inkston
