Calling all readers!

Guys. *takes a deep breath*
Okay.
Today I am doing something that I'm actually really nervous about. Excited, but nervous. I mean, it's exciting and nerve-wracking at the same time. And now I'm rambling. ;P
Sooo . . . I'll just get right to the point of this post.
I am asking for . . . beta-readers for A Question of Honor. This is the first novel-length project I've completed at around 66,000 words, and it's set in 1940 during WWII.
And here is the blurb, so you all know a little more about it.


A man. A child. A war. 

When German soldiers invade France during World War II, young Joyanna's perfect world is shattered. In the hands of those who hate her, she battles to comprehend why people can be so ruthless and cold toward those whom they have never met.

David Sullivan, pilot in the Royal Air Force, was certain he would never hate, but a painful loss forces him to either reconsider or do the inconceivable—forgive. He is suddenly challenged by the realization that doing God's will is not easy, but most important. With the lives of freedom-fighters relying on him, he must learn the difficult lesson that he is not in control, but merely one who must surrender his heart of obedience to One greater.

A sudden turn of events lands Joyanna and David in the same country—but for far different reasons. When their paths cross, David finds he must make a decision that will affect them both for the rest of their lives.

Will he chose vengeance, or will he let his life be ruled by a higher standard? A standard of Honor. 

(Much thanks to Bethany R., one of my alpha readers, for the fabulous blurb! ;)) 

If you would like to beta-read, you can fill out the form below! My goal will be to send the book to you by the 3rd week of September. As you can see on the form, I will need it back by the 5th of November, so that would give you a little over a month to read it. :) 
If you wish to beta-read, you have until the 21st to sign up, and Lord willing I will get it sent to you by Friday the 23rd. 






If you have any other questions, let me know via the "Contact Me" page, or my email if you have it. I can't wait to work with y'all! :D

  1. This looks awesome! I love World War II fiction. I even tried writing it once, but that was a flop, so I've just decided to stick to reading other people's books about it. ;)
    I hope this goes super well for you!
