Unfortunately his plans were cut short when a deal his father made with The Devil for Anders' soul comes to fruition. Anders finds himself in Hell and is turned into a demon. With a little divine intervention Anders is able to retain his soul, and his personality, and now he must venture through the Hellscape to locate and destroy Satan's 'Book of Souls' and free himself.

~I need Beta readers that are dedicated and won't bail on me! SOMEONE needs to make it all the way through my book LOL. I know life happens, and I'll take whatever help I can get, but I am hoping for a few people who can help for the long term.

I take criticism well and am always thankful and appreciative of my Betas! Anyone who is willing to read my stuff automatically becomes my hero and favorite person!

How I do it:
I send you one chapter at a time via email with a list of easy questions to answer and send back as soon as you have finished reading the chapter! It's easy, it's streamlined, and all I need now is you!

McRoy (ecmcroy) | 7 comments Though I know people do it different ways, you might have better luck with people finishing your manuscript if you send ut all at once with some questions attached to it instead of doing it chapter by chapter. It might be easier for people ti get involved with your story that way.

Amber (amberbass) | 5 comments Hi Emily!
I'd love to help, and would be happy to read your first chapter and see if we would be compatible. Lol, I know that sounds like a dating comment, but I think it's always good to do a test run to see how people work together. Let me know if interested!
Cheers,
Amber

Actually, the sending the full manuscript is what I started out doing. That didn't work (I've been at this editing thing for over a year off and on). So I'm trying the chapter by chapter dealy. A few people I did manage to get to read for me said they liked the chapter by chapter better, so I'm giving that a try for a while.

Shoot me your email, you can totes have chapter one to give it a look ;)

E. C. McRoy (ecmcroy) | 7 comments Emily, I'm glad that's working for you then! I can't stay interested if I just get it on pieces so I thought that might be it. And I've got one other beta read that I'm working on now, so I can't really do another yet, but thanks for the offer.


message 12: by Emily (new)

Emily Luebke | 11 comments Cool cool. Well if you're ever hanging around wondering what to read next, feel free to give me a shout. I can always send you the full thing if you like as well. If you should ever feel so inclined. :) Thanks for the interest :)

E. C. McRoy (ecmcroy) | 7 comments You bet. Thanks for the offer. I'll pop in again when I've got some time.

Donna  | 11 comments It has been quite a while since I have done proof reading, but I love to read, I have plenty of time right now, and I would be interested in reading this type of material. I love books written about any type of Demon, Vampire, werewolf, Carpathian immortal, shape shifter, so this seems to be right up my alley. send me a message if you would like me to take a look. My email address is dhoffman1964@gmail.com.

Sounds awesome! I'll shoot you chapter 1 :)

Donna  | 11 comments I received the chapter and read it and sent you back a message. Hope you received it.
I think the 1st chapter is very good and I can tell that it is the kind of book I love to read. I like a book that can get me interested within the first 3 chapters. The great thing about your book is I only received the 1st chapter so far, and found it an easy read. I know I would read this book quite quickly, I wouldn't want to put it down.
