The Vow

There’s a place I always go to when I miss you or need to talk. I always take photos because I can feel your energy roaming free.I feel you in every leaf that falls from the trees,In the flowers that sway gently with the summer breeze, And in every cloud that moves. The years have…

Beta Readers

Hi everyone, I have a question that’s been haunting me for the past few days. Has anyone here tried sending a manuscript to Beta readers? What are the pros and cons? And how can I find readers I can trust? Please feel free to share your experience in the comments below. I have a finished…
