One of the characters in the book that I am writing is an African American woman. I was told that I really need to try and find an African American woman who would be interested in being a "reader".
Ideally the female reader should also be a Christian, because the character in the book has a very particular mindset and worldview.
I am a first-time author, so I am really protective of my book, and I am trying to find a woman who I would feel comfortable with and who would mesh well with the characters in my book (since the characters have developed their own unique personalities).
If any of you know a woman who you know can be trusted with something that is this sensitive, and handle it with gentleness and respect, while still being honest and not "pulling punches" please let me know.
Thank you for your time,
