*Deep breath* Another big step for me!! Now that I officially published my novella, A Dream Not Imagined, in both kindle and paperback edition (the paperback will be up on Amazon.com in about 3-5 days), I feel it's time to search out beta readers for my full-length fantasy novel, Silver Rose!
(Mock cover for Silver Rose!)
I'm doing one last editing read-through before I plan to send it out to beta readers. I should probably be finished in a week or two... so, anyone up for reading a 190,000+ word novel? =D
- Reading through the novel
- Keeping an eye out for spelling/punctuation/grammar mistakes
- Noting any storywise errors (breaks in the flow of the story, flat characters, dragging on, etc.)
- Giving me an overview and your honest thoughts on the story
NOTE: And be gentle with me. If you tell me the story of my heart is a wretched, pathetic tale that doesn't deserve to see the light of day, I might cry. Okay, I will cry. *Ahem* That's the nervous writer in me talking.
In order to qualify for beta-reading, you should love to read (a.k.a., read a lot!) *smiles* And I would prefer that you enjoy fantasy/Christian allegories and don't mind long books!
I already have three people who volunteered to beta-read Silver Rose. I would love to have two or so more! So if you're interested, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, if anyone can tell me how to convert Microsoft Word documents into e-reader compatible files, that would be great! :D
So that's that! Let me know soon if you're interested, or if you have any questions! :) :)
