I’ve decided to add a short story to the Rolling Hills Books, this one is going to be Ma and Pops story. I think told in a series of flashbacks through Pop’s eyes. I’m not very far into it yet. I’ve been also working on another book that I’ve rewritten at least 10 times. I also have at least one for full length book for the Rolling Hills stories. This one is to cover Joe’s story. I need to make myself focus on those two before I continue with others. I would love to have a complete series for sale at AAD in Aug. of 2014 though honestly that doesn’t give me much time.
I’m starting school soon so I’m sure homework will take up any extra time I have, which isn’t much. I have so much respect for moms that are stay at home moms. I’ve been doing it just a month and still haven’t gotten a good grove going. We are working on it though.
I do have a new book that I’m submitting to a publishing company that hopefully will like it. My beta readers seemed to enjoy it, the ones that have gotten back to me so far anyway. Well time to get everything in line to submit it to the publishing company.
It’s been far too long. Life has thrown my family and I a few curve balls but I’m hoping to get back on track with my writing. I have a book finished and have asked my friends to read it however their lives are pretty crazy busy as well so I’m looking for beta readers.
A beta reader for those that are not sure is someone who gets to read the book first. You get to tell the author (me) what you thought of the book all for free. I’m not looking for someone to comb through it and edit it. I have an editor that does wonderfully (though if you’d like to do some feel free). Mostly I would love to have someone (or a few someones) to read over the book and tell me what you truly thought of it.
The hard part about this is that I need people that will be honest with me. I have thick skin and I take (constructive) criticism very well. I want to make sure I’m putting something good out there. If you want to be a beta reader please make sure that you are willing to tell me what you really thought of the book the good, the bad and the ‘that was a piece of shit’ (just in nicer words please lol)
Because this is before I have even had my editor go over it you have to be able to look past grammar issues. I am horrible about that. Also I use spell check but sometimes the word is spelled right but not the proper word so you’ll have to be able to look past that as well. I understand that for some that is VERY hard.
The book (Kat and the Cursed) is a YA or NA (not sure which market I want yet) and a romance with just a splash of paranormal. It is completely written (so you will not have to wait for the ending) I would like to get it out to some publishing companies as soon as possible but I would like to make sure that it all fits well first. This is my first attempt at using beta readers (besides my friends) and welcome any newcomers that want to try to be a beta reader. You would get the book for free and in return for the book you tell me what you think.
I will be posting for more beta readers each time I have a book to read because not all my books are going to be romance. (Though I do seem stuck in that area right now lol)
I may use some of your comments (the good ones of course) as quotes for the book when sending to a publishing company or (if I publish it myself) on the book’s cover or inside. Please contact me through the contact me link or you can email me at groomsbooks@yahoo
Thanks so much for taking the time to read everything and if you have any questions/comments feel free to ask!
