Beta Readers?

First of all, I need to apologize for my lack of posting lately.  Work has been crazy-busy.  I am still settling into my new home, so that keeps me busy.  I finally hung curtains in the bedroom over the weekend.  🙂  So my time here has been put on the back burner.

Something I have been working on away from WordPress is a Chapbook, of sorts.  I’ve decided to go the self-publishing route the first time around.  I think it will be a good experience for me and it will give me some needed exposure.

The reason I say this will be a Chapbook “of sorts”, is because it will combine poetry, prose and some flash fiction.  I’m looking at a total of about 70 to 75 pages for the book.

I would like to enlist the help of my fellow bloggers/writers here on WordPress.  I want about 6 Beta Readers for this project. I cannot pay anyone for this.  I’m asking for a favor.

I will be asking you to commit to a 2-week deadline and to answer a list of questions about the book.  With the book being only 75 pages or so, that timeline shouldn’t be difficult.

If you think you would like to be a Beta Reader for me,  please either use the contact form on my WordPress site or you can reach me by email at

At that point, I will give you a more in-depth idea of what I’m looking for and the list of questions I would like for you to answer about the book.

Once I have enough Beta Readers, I’ll close this post.

I’m excited about this project and I’m anxious to get started!  I look forward to your input!

Thank you for joining me on this journey!  Penny ❤
