WANTED – Beta Readers

WANTED – Beta Readers

As you know, if you keep up with my blog, I’ve recently finished my first draft of Avoiding The Tilt and posted a preview chapter here. It’s a humorous fiction book, (65,000 words) so if you need a laugh or two this one’s for you.

Now I need some good reliable beta readers. Preferably someone who will critique the story, point out any discrepancies in the story line, too much dribble, out of order chapters, etc. You know the drill.

Here’s your chance to read the full story ahead of the game. If you are interested in beta reading or know of a reliable beta reader, please comment below with your email address or email me at knowles.elle@gmail.com

My kids and other family members don’t count because they have to be nice. Hope to hear from you.

What Hat are You Wearing Today

What Hat are You Wearing Today

Hats come in many different styles and colors. I wear many. Not so much as in actually wearing the hat, but as in doing what it represents.

My inventory of hats include – and not in any certain order –

  1. Daughter
  2. Sister
  3. Wife
  4. Mother
  5. Grandmother
  6. Keeper of all things important
  7. Writer
  8. Seamstress
  9. Pillow maker
  10. Lover of Social Media
  11. Clutter remover
  12. Mediator
  13. Self-Publisher
  14. Promoter
  15. Peacemaker
  16. Multi-tasker
  17. Blogger

I’m sure there is some hat I forgot to mention. The point is, I spread myself thin – very thin. But I like to keep busy so all is well.

At the moment I’m trying to finish my WIP. I’m not sure of the title yet. But it’s fiction and funny (it makes me laugh) and profiles the life of a working wife (Evie) with a newly retired husband (Leo). Leo needs a project to keep him busy and Evie needs time to keep her work-from-home business from sinking. This proves to be a large task with Leo underfoot. Visit Elle Knowles Facebook page to keep up with the process.

The holidays are here and that gets me working on my Etsy shop. (Yeah, I have one) Everyone needs new pillow covers to add cheer for the holidays. I’ve got a promotional contest going on now. Drop by pillowpods Facebook page and like, share, and comment on the post to have a chance to win a free holiday pillow cover. Visit pillowpods on Etsy to see all the pillowcovers. New pillow covers for all occasions coming soon!

I’m in the middle of making my newest grandchild a christening outfit. I’ve got this much done and waiting on a pants length from his mother so I can cut out the pants. I had to make that jacket pattern because I couldn’t find one with a shawl collar, but it turned out better than I expected. Hope it fits. Sewing long distance is not easy.

Andrew will be home in a couple weeks, between semesters, for Christmas, so I’m trying to figure out where to stash all this ‘stuff‘ so he’ll have a place to lay his head. BTW – today is his 25th birthday! Happy Birthday Andrew!

I haven’t gotten my tree up yet, but I’ve thought about it a lot. I wonder sometimes if H realizes this needs to be done – soon.

So that’s what’s been going on in my life. Busy, busy but it keeps me happy! What’s going on for the holidays with you?

Let me go find another hat to wear!
