A Chance to Read My Stories Before They’re Published

Attention all book lovers: here is a chance to read books before they are published. You read the manuscript, look for errors in syntax, continuity, and readability, and get back to the author with your comments. (Remember to be constructive; writers have feelings too).

Russ Towne's A Grateful Man


Would you like to read my stories before they are published? Are you willing to be Beta Reader? I seek Beta Readers for Flora Belle and Dreami Dragon (a picture book story) and A Hippo Learns to Fly (my first board book story*.)

For those who are unfamiliar with the term, Beta Readers read stories before they’re published and provide feedback to the author about their reaction to the written material. I can provide details if you express possible interest. Please let me know if you’d like to be a Beta Reader for either or both of these stories.

*For those who may be curious as to why I wrote a board book story, I’ve received requests from readers with younger children to please write board books. This first attempt was inspired by Kristi and uses ideas from one of my earlier picture books. Thank you for your suggestions, Kristi!

With Love,
