Need some Christmas reading?

Do you like beta-reading? Let me guess, it depends on the book, genre, and how long it is? Okay, fine. Here are some details.

Description (rough, not finalized):

When her fiancé, Blair, is caught with another woman, Edith breaks off her engagement after only one week. Her parents are appalled that she would let such a nice young man out of her grasp. Edith is crushed by their reaction.

As the weeks go by, she catches glimpses of Blair in odd places and finally files a restraining order on him. When he still doesn’t leave her alone, she quietly moves out of town and lives under an alias.

Will Edith be able to get her parents to understand how disturbing Blair has become? Will she ever feel safe again?

Title: I My Cross Have Taken
Genre: Contemporary Christian Suspense
Length: 24,000 words (48 regular pages)
Deadline: I would send the book to you on or around December 23 and would prefer it back with your comments by January 14th.

There are some light moments in this novella, but it is a heavier read than most of my books. I know the Holidays are a busy time for people, so don’t worry if you can’t do it this time. I’ll have another novel (lighter than this one) needing beta-read soon as well.

If you are interested, please email me and I’ll send the book out to you either on Friday or Monday.

Take care and Merry Christmas!

    I would love to…but am already beta-reading another book with a similar deadline… sorry Faith ='(.
    However, just one thought… you may want to change Blair’s name. It’s a girl name… and, well… let’s just say I reread that first sentence because of it several times in great confusion (I know you would Never write anything like that, but I was still confused).

      No problem, Polaris. I totally understand.
      You’re right, I would never write something like that. Blair is actually an either/or name, apparently. Did not know that until you forced me to look it up. I’ll consider changing it, but I don’t know if I will or not. Thanks for pointing it out even though it threw me for a loop. 😛
