Accepting Beta Readers!

I am now accepting beta readers for my Lovecraftian crime novel (novella? novelette? Around 48K words), No-Eyed Girls (title may change) between January 2nd, 2020 and January 16, 2020.

Without giving too much away, its from the POV of both the protagonist and antagonist, and it’s divided into three sections. The book that I could say it’s similar to would be 14 by Peter Clines. So, if you enjoyed that book, or are you into Lovecraftian horror or detective/crime stories, you may enjoy No-Eyed Girls.

Those are chosen to beta reader will have their name listed under the “thanks to”/”acknowledgements” in the book once published.

If you’re interested, please send an email to themicahcastle@gmail.com with your preferred digital format (ePub, .mobi, etc)!

So I decided to list a few of the ones that I enjoyed the most. Some might be published in 2019, some might have been published in 1998, even some earlier than that. However, the books published in 2019 will be indicated by an asterisk(*). Also, these are listed in no particular order.

Without further adieu…
