Beta-readers Needed

     The king of Hanadil throws a ball to find a suitor for his beloved daughter, Ilona.  But more things are at stake than anyone realized.  As long-held secrets come to light, the suitors will be tested beyond expectations.  And when the deepest secret of all threatens to plunge Ilona into eternal sleep, only one man can save her.

     I had one person read AAM and give me feedback, and she was amazing.  I would love to have another couple of readers.  Is anybody willing to volunteer?  It is close to 20k words, and I'd like to start my final round of edits by the first of November (if you think you can give me your feedback by then).


     In a galaxy far from our own, a planet trembles under the forces of good and evil.  Every member of its society is subject to the age-old pact with the lab known as SPINDLE, which periodically reaps the planet for test subjects or “sleeping beauties.”  Can Mikaya escape their clutches?  Or will she, too, be subject to one hundred years of tortured sleep?

     A couple people read SPINDLE for me, and I made some changes based on their feedback.  I'd like to have it read a couple more times to see if it is better now.  It's less than 13k words.  Any volunteers?


     If you are interested, leave me a comment below.  I won't be publishing the comments on this particular post, so you are welcome to use it to give me your contact info.  Thank you, guys!!!


  1. Clara, can you comment with your email address? Please?

  2. Ooo your writing two, I don't know how you manage it. I can barely get mine one entry written. Great snippets, I would love to read them, but I can't guarantee that I would be able to get back to you in the allotted time.
