Beta Readers: New Jacke Book Shipping Today!

Definition of a good day:

I’m trying a new tactic this time: hard copies, a comment sheet, and a return envelope, postage paid. Also going for a wider demographic.

Very thankful for the help from all my early readers. If you’re interested, let me know!

Onward and upward!

Anxiety that I am forgetting something: Fever Pitch

Welcome, Beta Readers!

Thanks to everyone who has served as a beta reader, or to those of you who have signed up for more. As always, I hope the process will not be too painful. (Side note: at the first deposition I ever took, the first thing out of my mouth was a reassurance to the witness that I hoped that the process “would not be painless” for him. I have higher hopes for my beta readers!) 

I’m always looking for fresh pairs of eyes. If you would like to take a look at works in progress and have some input into a manuscript before it turns into a book, please contact me at

Many thanks in advance for all the help!
