This weekend, I have been basking in my winner’s glory due to my camp Nano ‘win,’ and have now turned my attention to the deadline for a free hardcover/hardback proof copy from Lulu.com, which is 31 August 11:59 PM PST. I’m currently looking for beta readers to read and check my manuscript for errors, and suggest changes. So far, I have three unpublished manuscripts: two fantasy novels, and one Y A/ chick lit novel. I’m looking for readers to:
Read through my manuscript
Highlight changes and/or improvements in a BOLD colour, red and bright yellow work well, so I can see them (for those of you who don’t know, I am severely sight impaired/blind)
Suggest changes and/or improvements.
Please remember that I have been writing since November, and so I’m relatively new to it . I use Dragon dictation to dictate my novels, due to my Cerebral Palsy, so , if you find any errors in there, they will have been made by a dictation program, so please clearly indicate these, and also changes for them as I have described above.
Finally, here are the synopses so that you can choose which book you would like to read.
The Spellbrooke Trilogy Book 2: Return to Spellbrooke (Camp NaNoWriMo April 2014)
Casey , Rachel and friends are back! This time they must save Spellbrooke from a curse which has meant the enchanted land has frozen . Will they complete the challenges in time to save Spellbrooke from an eternal Winter ?
The Secret Dreamworld of a Disabled Shopaholic (Camp NaNoWriMo July 2014)
Hi , I am Tiffany, I am 16, and am a shopaholic. I am also a wheelchair user (although I think of my wheelchair as my wings) .
Follow me as I battle queues, lifts, shopping malls and changing rooms and get a unique insight into my life through my diary. Welcome to my (cool but sometimes wierd) life as I know it. Shopping is my passion, as are my friends and my cat Snowball. I also have a special power-I am a super-heroine! who said just because I am in a wheelchair I can’t help people? life is an adventure, and is there to be lived!
I would like to submit both for the proof copy, but, if it turns out I can only submit the one I just dictated for the current session of Camp, then it will be the July one. They are in need of urgent proofreading, so, if you love reading and want to/ can help, please reply to this post with your email, and I will send a copy right over, or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with the email address you would like me to send the manuscript to.
Thanks in advance!
