Well, I should be.
But I’m actually blogging about editing.
So, like… whatever.
Anyways, I’m making the first pass of edits through Lexx’s Story. Right now it’s all copy-editing and some sentence rearranging. When I edit, I like to knock out the simple stuff first (spelling, grammar, punctuation) and then move on to things like context and content. The first draft is normally for my eyes only, the second only gets seen by beta readers, and the third, well the third is the final, so everybody sees that.
And I mean everybody. (If you haven’t, then you ain’t everybody, and trust me. You want to be everybody.)
That being said, I’d like to open the door for some new beta readers. If you would be interested in receiving an ARC (advanced reader copy), there’s a couple things you gotta do:
1. You have to at least read the rest of the Savannah Zombie Novel series. Lexx’s Story will not make as much sense if you have not read the others.
2. It would be really helpful if you have REVIEWED at least ONE of my other works.
3. Lastly, I would appreciate you posting a review of Lexx’s Story when it releases. Those first reviews are critical for my books to gain any kind of traction and they help other readers know what to expect.
If you are interested in becoming a beta reader, email me at beencalled(at)gmail(dot)com
I will send you an advanced copy of Lexx’s Story and will also open the door for future works. (Book 3 anyone?)
Back to work.
