Writers' Platform Building Campaign and asking for beta readers

I'm happy to join Rachael Harrie's Third Writers' Platform Building Campaign. It's a fantastic way to link those in the writing community together with the aim of building our online platforms. Her previous two were great successes and this one is going to be phenomenal. If you're a writer and haven't heard of the campaign yet, please check out Rachael's site. You only have until the end of the month to sign up.




I am also searching for a couple of beta readers who love paranormal romance. Mine is on the erotic side, so please, only those over 18 years of age. I don't expect anyone to edit or critique my manuscript. I want to know what well read paranormal romance fans think of my story. If you'd like to help me out, please email me at christinerains.writer@gmail.com.

  5. Good luck with the beta readers, I find the whole process of letting your stuff out there for others to read so intimate... it freaks me out. Anyway, have I ever told you that you've got a very pretty website? Well done.

  14. Hello and welcome, everyone!

    Rusty, thank you for the compliment about my site! My husband is the programmer. I'm also nervous about beta readers, but I value their opinions.

    Rachael, I'm way too over-educated! *LOL* My degrees: Law Enforcement, Creative Writing, Sociology, and Philosophy. I still want to go back to school. I'm still paying off student loans, though.

    Jayne, please do point her in this direction. Thank you very much!

  27. Hi Christine,

    We are in the same PNR group. Not sure if I already swung by to say hi since I'm already a follower (and my brain is fried from hopping to so many blogs). Anyway, wanted to make sure I connected with you and to say I'm looking forward to know more about you.
