Rants, Raves, & Random Thoughts

Shameless self-promotion of my writing skills or lack there of.

Do you want to play with me?

Ah…I have written the end, but is the book really complete? No, of course it isn’t. Now I need to get it into the hands of Beta Readers. Do you have what it takes to cast a beady eye over this book? I need people that won’t treat the work with kid gloves. I want to have the weaknesses revealed and the mistakes pointed out. Said Beta reader has the opportunity to tear this story apart. So, go nuts! All kidding aside, if something doesn’t work, I need to know so that I can fix it.

Does this sound like something that would interest you? If so, then let me know. You can email me at jgoodman@goodysworld.com or just let me know in the comments section.

Thanks for playing...

I've probably got room for you in my 'Rob Reads' sub-Blog. Whatcha got?

I'll help!! I have already read the whole thing once and can now look at it from an editing stand-point without getting wrapped up in the story.

Let me know. What editing format do you use? I feel comfortable with the Chicago Manual of Style but it really doesn't matter.

Rob, I don't have any of them published yet. My first one comes out in the first quarter of 2006. I will sure let you know when that happens.

Snavy, glad to have your help and the Chicago Manual of Style will do nicely.

Goody I am huge fan of your writings but I don't feel that I am in a position to give you advice on your pieces . I don't have a writers eye , so to speak . Now if you need some compliments I can go on and on with that ! Anyways , I am off to read the last chapter , I have been very busy today and haven't had a chance to get online ! :)

I appreciate your honesty, Breazy. Beta Reading isn't for everyone. The important thing is that I think you really enjoyed the story. I hope you like the ending.
