If you would like to be a beta reader, we will send you the manuscript no later than January 1st. We would appreciate the comments back to us by February 16th. This would give you six weeks to read and comment.
The information that we would like to know is:
1. Did you enjoy the story?
2. Were any parts of the story confusing?
3. Were there any missing plot points?
4. Were the characters believable?
5. Did you have any feelings about the characters?
6. Was the ending satisfactory?
7. What could be included in the story to make it more enjoyable for you?
We have made every effort to make the manuscript publish-ready. Since it has not been professionally edited yet, we ask our readers to focus on the developmental points and not the edits. Once we receive your comments and make adjustments to the manuscript, we will then submit it for a professional edit.
Here is the blurb.
The Contract is a story of two souls who must venture to Earth to stop a catastrophic event that is threatening the viability of the planet. They will have no memory of their eternal life once they occupy the bodies chosen for them. The two must deal with the situation using only the temporal skills of their host beings. They sign a contract before leaving their celestial home that stipulates what is required. They commit even though they have no guarantee of success but cannot resist the ultimate reward which is a personal anointing by the Creator. There is no alternative for failure.
If you enjoy thrillers, this is one with a twist designed to keep you riveted and guessing. It bridges the heavenly and earthly realms and only when the adventure is completed, will it be learned if the two souls have fulfilled their sacred contract or have become corrupted by the forces of evil.
