Who likes a good Robin Hood story? I have both hands in the air! I have loved Robin Hood since I was little. When I was praying about book three in the Tales of Faith series, I decided to veer away from fairytales and go with good ol’ Robin Hood. My character who plays this role is none other than Dumphey, from “The Secret Slipper.”
Before “Protecting the Poor” can be published though, I need a few beta readers (or pre-readers).
What are beta readers? I’m glad you asked. 😉 The technical beta-reading “responsibility” is to monitor the flow of the story and let me know the “feel” of character development. However, I don’t mind if beta readers point out typos or things that just don’t make sense (E.g. Does it bring up any questions you feel unanswered? Does it feel like there are any gaps in the story? Something that wasn’t clearly explained? Something that seems too repetitive?)
Now that you know what a beta reader is, you know what you might be getting yourself into. 😉 There is a slight hitch, though. I work best with a team of about ten beta readers. This means that I have to pick and choose. 😛 I hate having to do that, but… if you don’t make it for the beta reading team, there is always the review team coming up in the future, Lord willing!

Have you read my summer releases yet?
I am still ecstatic that the Lord allowed me to release two short stories this summer! (AND finish writing the rough draft of “Protecting the Poor”–it’s been a great summer of writing!)
I am open to five more reviewers for both “Finding Christmas Joy” and “Quest for Leviathan.” If you’d like to review either of these (click on the titles to read their blurb and what reviewers already have to say), just email me at amandaterobooks(at)gmail(dot)com! First five will get a free e-copy to review!

What excitement are you celebrating this week?
It’s that time!! The book trailer for “The Secret Slipper” has now aired!!!! I’m so excited to be sharing more about this upcoming book with you!
I have reached over 500 pins on my medieval writing board. And it’s third-to-next book I’m writing. 😉 Castles and princesses, secret tunnels and spies. Ah, my mind is swirling with ideas!
What’s a dream project you have?
(view my medieval pinterest board here)
When you get on Pinterest and your sister has sent you fifty medieval pins. I think someone besides me is excited about dreams for a medieval story. Though a medieval story is still in the dreams/prayers, there’s nothing wrong with looking for ideas, is there?
