I think I’ve found a couple of people to be Beta Readers for my book. In my last post, I mentioned the Beta Reader website I found. Today I got an email from them that someone requested to read my book.
I also belong to City-Data where I can participate in various forums of interest. In one of the writing threads, someone said they would be happy to beta read for me.
Tonight I’ll reach out to both of them and we’ll get the ball rolling. Which is exciting because I really want this book to see the light of day and I know it takes a lot of work for that to happen. Hopefully, this will be a successful next step in getting onto bookstore shelves.
My new book isn’t much further than it was last time. I’ve done a little free-writing, but I need to work on coming up with more of a plot.
In other news, I was finally able to get a positive ID on a photo from my Grandma’s house. It felt like there was some kind of significance to the church, since they had it matted and framed.
Now that I’ve identified it, hopefully it will help me to find out what was so important to my family that they kept a framed picture of it all of these years.
After living in Charleston, SC all this time, you would think I was used to seeing buildings in almost the same condition they were in over 100 years ago. It never ceases to amaze me, though. After all the years that pass…weather events, wars, fire, and all other manner of natural disaster, some of these buildings manage to live through it all. It’s buildings like this that you can feel the history breathing in the walls. It’s almost like you can touch a window and touch the hand of someone else from an earlier time.
I love that connection to the past.
