I have just started a second beta reader on my upcoming book–Historical Fiction Based On Fact, Past-Life Hypnotic Regression. I wanted to share what my reader, who had asked me to beta read the book after seeing my last blog on “Annie”. This is what she had to say after reading just the first two small chapters where Annie’s parents die of the dreaded fever prevalent in early Colonial America:

OK, they died and passed to another dimension…got that.  Don’t leave me hanging; what’s next?!?

Obviously I am hooked.  And that is not easy because from all my years proofreading, grammatical errors, etc., become very distracting to me.  Your writing has none of those.  Plus it reads fast ( if you know what I mean).  I hate reading where I have to stop and focus on every single word.

Frankly, I am picky about what fiction I read and I find yours intriguing.  Your characters are beautifully  brought to life (which you promptly killed-off) without excess verbiage — kudos.
 
You made me cry.  Not because she died but understanding the utter despair he must have felt conscious enough to ken what was coming.

Between you and I, my family also has such “gifts” in our background, which by-the-way is heavily Scottish and Welsh.
Of course, I will be sending the rest of the book for her to read, Sections II-VI. I hope to have the book finished and published by July/August 2016. I have about two Sections and The Epilogue to complete. –Deborah A. Bowman, Author

Blessed With A Gift Cover
Annie lives in her own world. She talks to the animals and faeries. Quoted from ANNIE’S STORY: BLESSED WITH A GIFT–“Annie is an enigma.”

Just last week a wonderful new friend I’ve made on WordPress, www.susieshy45.wordpress.com (You should visit her site!) agreed to be a Beta Reader for my upcoming book, Annie’s Story, Blessed With A Gift. I sent her the beginning, which includes the Foreword, Glossary, and first two sections–10 chapters. I want to thank her from the bottom of my heart for her well-written and encouraging email. I have lots more to send her to read, as soon as I can get all the corrections done…an editor’s work is never done…

Anyway, thank you Susie, and here’s what she had to say about “Annie”:

Hi Debbie,

I read through the entire manuscript you sent me in one sitting- it was nail-bitingly, fiercely addictive and I could not put it down, till I finished and when I did I was left wanting to know Hannah’s story and Granny’s story and whether Annie made it to adulthood. It is haunting and I need to get the rest of it.
You have given meanings of old English ?/Scottish words in the beginning and also mentioned a few word meanings in brackets in the first couple of chapters. It was very helpful for me as a reader to not have to go to the dictionary at the beginning of the book to understand words, not mentioned in it but in the text -I loved it.
The story is wonderful and honestly if one is looking for a historic fiction- that this is not. It is very scientifically written, so it makes it more believable for a scientifically minded person and he/she will not critique the book saying this is pure imagination- There is a logic in the sequences of the book and I could very well believe that all these instances had really happened in some human being’s life at some point.
I have recently completed a course conducted by the Harvard university on English poems from different time periods – early Puritan- then early 18th century, modern and so on. This story is so similar to the lives of the Puritan women who we studied in the almost related time period. I can still hear my lecturer standing in the chapel of Harvard College and reading some of those classic poems. The language you use, is similar in texture not in actual words as the language of those times, because I think you use ancient Gaelic and they used Puritan English.
I loved this book and I want to read more. When I have read the entire manuscript, I hope to have some constructive criticism ready.
Till such time, I remain waiting for the next installment of your book, to appease my searching soul. 🙂
God bless ! A creative person has been personally blessed by God and I think you are truly blessed.
Keep writing, we need to read your work !
Best regards, and lots of love,
Susie
Thank you, Susie. It brought tears to my eyes!–Deborah A. Bowman
