Beta-Readers Sign-Up Sheet: TOUCHING INDIGO

Well, I have the first three chapters of Touching Indigo written -- finally, a proper partial to go with my synopsis. These chapters have already benefited from the critical eyes of lizbee and cesario, but I could use some more input, particularly from readers who have some experience or knowledge of:

a) criminal law, particularly in regard to psychiatric patients;
b) psychiatric counselling and therapy, particularly in the context of a hospital;
c) the effects of anti-psychotics and anti-depressants;
d) mental illnesses in general;
e) synaesthesia.

I've done a fair bit of research into all of the above, but I know without a doubt there will be things I've overlooked or simply didn't know enough to look up.

Anyway, if you don't mind reading three chapters of my original paranormal YA and giving me whatever thoughts, questions and criticisms that occur to you, I would be grateful. Though the down side to all this, aside from the work involved, is that you only get three chapters and then you will be stuck waiting for an indefinite period of time until I've written the rest! But if you like the book enough to want to continue, let me know and I will keep you in mind for future reference.

If you're interested, please comment on this post and let me know -- especially if you're an expert in one of the areas noted above. Comments will be screened for your privacy. Thanks!
