I have now started to give away my work. Since my focus is now on my craft, I decided that I'd open up my full drafts to "beta" readers. Feel free to read and comment here, or send me an email. In return for a comment on the drafts, I'll send you a free paperback book (of any that I've published or will publish soon), if you want it (email me with your snail mail address.) These are works in progress. There are likely typos, grammatical errors, etc. Feel free to point those out, for sure, but also know that they will at some point be dealt with. But whatever level of comment you are willing to provide is greatly appreciated (even "man, this novel sucks, in these three ways:" is welcome.)
Becoming Queen is a fantasy story with a science fiction premise. There are two countries with exceedingly different ideas on the right way to live one's life. Daneli is the daughter of Duke Trevalian, a man from the Southern country, Trageri, who married a Northern woman, to seal a peace treaty. Daneli is heir to throne of the South. This world is a colony founded a thousand years ago after Earth became uninhabitable. Both countries have relatively minimal technology, largely by choice. There is court intrigue, alternative family structures, and some neat characters that develop in interesting ways. This is the first novel of a planned series.
