Beta Reading – New Reeferpunk Story from David Mark Brown!

I just wrapped up sending my feedback on the forthcoming newest installment in David Mark Brown’s Reeferpunk series of novels.  I also had the pleasure of beta reading his first two: Fistful of Reefer: Reeferpunk and The Austin Job.  His latest work builds on the two previous novels bringing back the main characters and throwing them once again into the line of fire.  This particular story’s setting struck a chord with me (yes, I am intentionally omitting details…) through the vivid descriptions David has created.  His character development continues to be strong amidst a good story.  If you are not reading to provide critical feedback, I think you will find David’s latest story a quick and fun read.

Oh – here’s a hint to anyone else beta reading, don’t use ePub in iBooks.  You can export (email, print) your notes, but not the highlighted sections.  The notes alone are pretty useless without the text to which they refer.  Several hours of transcription later…

How is the first revision of “The West Wind” going Don?

Ummm.  Well.  Not so well.

I’ve heard much about the fear and incapacitation caused by a blank page.  I am suffering the opposite.  The sight of a full page of my prose sends me running the other direction.  I keep finding plenty of other things to do…  such as…

I was flattered to be asked by David Mark Brown to beta read his latest work “The Austin Job.”  If you are a follower you recall that I had read and reviewed his first work: “Fistful of Reefer.”  This next installment brings back some “love to hate” characters from the first book and a few “easter egg” references for readers of Fistful to discover.  David continues to develop his narrative skills as he begins to explore the “punk” side of the v1.0 Xpunk genres.  Ever present are the over-the-top characters and action that I enjoyed from his first work.  Expected release date of “The Austin Job” is on or about December 24.

In the meantime… back to not doing what I should be doing…
