My blogging hiatus was very timely. It proved to be a time for catching my breath and looking to the future. But now I’m writing to you again, and let me tell you: it feels good!
As promised, here is your first peek at my debut novella, the first book in a series of four:
Hopefully, this is just the first of many exciting sneak peeks and teasers to come over the next four months.
So? What is your first impression?
Seeking Beta Readers for the month of May
To my simultaneous excitement and apprehension, I want to invite you to read a pre-publication draft of Isolated.
Should you agree, you will receive a free copy of my manuscript, aware that it’s subject to change.
In exchange, I ask that you give me your honest feedback. I’m not expecting an eloquent essay. I would simply like your thoughts regarding your experience as a reader. Think of it as though you picked my book from a shelf at random, and are discussing it with a friend. I do not want anything flattering – only honesty, please.
There are two, specific ways you may be able to help me:
- If you’re an enthusiast on one of the themes or topics that come into play throughout the story (eg. wilderness survival, military things, or anything else you pick up), I welcome your critique regarding the accuracy of my plot/descriptions.
- Whoever you are, whatever your beliefs, I welcome your thoughts regarding the way I represent God’s character in my writing style and the story itself.
I hate to put a deadline on this, but I’m on a schedule and have only a small amount of time left until I’m supposed to release Isolated to the world. If you would be so kind, please help me by limiting yourself to the month of May. It’s a short read – 156 pages.
If you’ve read all the above and you’re still interested in beta reading for me, please send me an email and express your interest at:
Please replace the ‘[at]’ with a ‘@’ and the ‘[dot]’ with a ‘.’. I’ve written my email address like this to avoid being spammed.
You can use anything as your subject line, really, but if the idea of crafting the perfect subject line intimidates you as it does me, then use:
Beta Reading for Isolated
Phew! That was a lot of nitty-gritty details! Thank you for bearing with me through it all. I expect to be back Saturday with a more eternal-minded post. Until then, may your thoughts guide you closer and closer to the Creator of the universe and of your soul.
PS: Isolated Blog Tour
Okay, one more point about Isolated. I’m looking to go on (“make”? Or “have”?) a blog tour leading up to its release. As you might guess, I’m very new to this. Please bear with me and my awkwardness.
If you’re a blogger and it suits your blog’s purpose, would you kindly consider hosting me any day from the Monday the 4th of September to Saturday the 9th (including both dates)?
