Looking for first readers.

What is a First Reader you ask?

As a first reader you get to read my books first. You get to tell me what you like and don’t like. You get to help me make my book into a publishable manuscript. You also get to tell me that the whole things stinks if that is how you feel . “Yuck” is a regular note one of my editors sends me so yuck away and also Ooo and ahhhh away! Every yuck gets edited into an ooooo because of your advice!

I need a dozen first readers for my book The GearMaker’s Locket. You get my story in three pieces. Ten chapters are ready. You just make notes and send it back to me. I then get you the next third of the book.

The benefit other than having permission to say Yuck to someone?

You get bragging rights!  You were the first one to read my book. Up to the challenge? I will also send you a copy of the published version of my books when they come out!

One thing I have learned from all these authors I have seen lately is that first readers are a must! The book has been professionally edited, revised multiple times and is ready for the final once through. Does anyone have some spare reading time on their hands? I’ve got the first ten chapters of the book right here ready to go. The next third of the book will be ready in about a month or so and the final third a month or so after that.

Email me and let me know that you are interested.

Have a wonderful week!
