(Update 5/19/2013: All the slots are filled for beta readers for this book. Thanks to everyone who signed up!)
Time for the second book in the Far Forth Fables series. This book , "Amanda and the Harefooted Flame," picks up a few months after the events in "Amanda and the Scleeberry Tree." It's the end of summer and love is in the air!
Just a quick bit of background if you didn't read the first fable, "Amanda and the Scleeberry Tree." Eleven-year-olf Amanda Farlabane lives in a small village with her parents, in a world that's slightly out of skew with ours. For instance, Amanda has a scleeberry tree, and if you eat too many scleeberries at the same time (which Amanda has and still does), weird things start happening to your body. You can run your legs off. You can blow your top. You can screw up your face so tight it takes two hands to undo it.
With that in mind, here's an except from the new book:
"Then, Amanda realized she would have to kiss Tom. Just thinking about it gave her the heebie-jeebies. In no time, they crawled out her ears and filled the inside of The Quick."
Here's how Beta reading works: I send you the book for free. On this book, you'll have until August 1, 2013 to read it. If you find typos or grammatical problems, you write me. You can also write me with any comments, criticisms or suggestions that you might have. If you send me any kind of input, I will put your name in the back of the book when I publish it. In addition, if you send me a good quote about the book, I may even include the quote and your name on the back cover!
The beta copies are already ordered. I should be sending them Tuesday, May 29, 2012. (Oh... and I should tell you that the book is 240 pages long.)
Thanks in advance for your help! If you would like to be a Beta reader for "Amanda and the Harefooted Flame," I'll need you to "order" it so I can get your shipping address but there is no charge to do this!! You can order the book by [clicking here
For those of you just wandering by, there are links to the left on the various writing projects I've worked on or have scheduled to work on. There's also a podcast I do every week called "driving home" (in which I talk as I... drive home. ;-)
Have a great day!
