On Friday, July 1, I sent out a request among my newsletter subscribers for early readers. I was absolutely blown away by the response. Before the day ended, I had reached my set minimum number of readers. Before the end of the weekend, I had my set number of maximum readers. The response was humbling and exciting.
Perhaps one of my favorite things is to share my stories with others. For the most part, a reader experiences my book long after it is written. But with beta readers the story is still very alive for me, the characters are still my constant companions, the setting is still a part of me. I absolutely love the chance to be a part of readers' experiences. I love to hear your feedback and your experiences with the characters, story line, and themes.
Right now I am wrapping up some loose ends with the installments. What that means is I'm days away from sharing this story with a select group of readers. I can't wait. I am so excited. Knowing there is this first group of willing readers has given me the necessary motivation to finish what I started!
