In honor of the new month, I am looking for alpha readers! To be honest, it’s in honor of my birthday in a few weeks because I want to push finishing this story before I’m old and gray. Seriously how is this year flying by??
But whatever the reason: AHH ALPHAS. Ready or not.
I’ve mentioned finding alpha readers for the past few weeks, and I finally decided to jump in and just do it. Is the story finished? No. Am I ready to hand my work over? No. Is this jumbled draft readable? Probably hopefully maybe. Should I do it anyway?
As you’ve probably already guessed, the lucky novel is my Ruth and Boaz retelling: R+B.
romance, Christian, historical
Ruth Ross is far too young to be a widow. When her grieving mother-in-law Margaret announces she’s traveling back to her hometown, it doesn’t make life easier. Following Margaret into the Alaskan wilderness, Ruth must learn how to survive in a town with a surplus of rough trackers and miners where the only gentleness is in the peaceful stream flowing beside her tent.
Born and raised in a cabin outside a growing Alaskan town, Harrison Boaz’s life changes when his father decides to give him the family business. He soon discovers this new responsibility to drain his freedom and squash his mountain adventures out of existence. Fighting the tug of the wilderness, Harrison struggles to fulfill his duty of keeping the family business strong.
The novel is not finished yet. So those of you who want to read it will be getting it chapter by chapter as I write it. There may be days between emails, there may be weeks. Please keep that in mind.
Here are my guidelines:
If you fit those criteria and are willing to help me edit, fill out the form below! I will be closing it in a week and a half (September 20).
Once the week and a half are up, I will send out an introductory email to let you know in a little more detail what I’m looking for and how everything is going to work. Shortly after, I will send out the first chapter!
SO excited to work with you guys <3
