Today also happens to be my 6 month blogiversary!!! Crazy, right? I could think of no better way to celebrate than to ask for beta readers. *screams*
I understand not all of you may be interested, and that's totally fine, but I encourage you even more than the others to give it a shot.
For those of you that are interested, I have a couple of restrictions. I have decided not to limit the number, so you're good there. However, you must sign up before September 1 to qualify. Also, you have to be able to finish reading the book in the month of September. It's 33 chapters and 95K long. I know this will be an issue for some of you since you're busy people! But this is essential since I am trying to get this book out before the end of the year. Sorry!!
For those of you who get into it the project and don't think you can finish in time, that's okay. I understand that life explodes sometime and I do want this to be fun for you. But I will no longer be applying feedback after September 30, as I have to move the book to a professional editor by then.
Also, if you're wondering what on earth a beta reader is, you can read that entire post right here. In short, I expect you to follow the deadline and provide me with honest feedback as you read. This is for you to get an advanced copy of my novel and me to get advanced feedback :)
If you need to know more about what you'll be reading, visit My Writings page and check out all the info about Martin Hospitality. It's appropriate for teens and adults of any background, stage of life, and gender. I'll give you a teaser (and my first official piece of fan art) submitted by the lovely Katie Grace. Cause you'll all want to read it since she has, right? ;)
So that's it! If you're still game, let's get going. Some of these questions are going to be redundant. :P
I am so excited to work with you guys!! Spread the word, as I cannot have too many readers!! (I don't think.) Let me know if you have any issues or questions in the comments and I will try to be prompt in my reply :)
How do you spell blogiversary? Are you excited?!?!
