Okey dokey, guys. Soul Insurance is ready to get handed around. One of the problems of constantly editing your own work is you end up being overly critical. It’s hard to be objective of whether you told a good story or not, and in the end, that’s all I’m really trying to do.
I think Soul Insurance held up pretty well (as in I didn’t sick of re-reading it constantly myself ). It has a fun, unique concept, with a couple of interesting relationships holding it all together. There’s fun, romance, a little bit of mystery, and the cool idea of a world where the word “ghost” doesn’t exist. Souls are everywhere, existing with society, and the main character Connor is the one person who can hear them.
I think I got everyone covered who wanted to beta read. If you read this post, and don’t end up with an email from me before the end of the day, holler at me. I just went through the other thread and jotted down everyone who volunteered.
As always, I put a little “Thank you” in front of the novel when it comes out. If you’ve got a special name you want me to call you, let me know (not everyone wants their name being seen).
In regards to feedback, I’ll take any kind I can get. Some people like to do the grammar / spelling side of things, while others are more plot focused. It’s all good to me. I’ll take anything from “this word would work better here” to “you need more of this character” to “you misspelled cat”. But above all, please let me know whether you liked the story or not, and anything you’d change.
