I'm so encouraged. After two years of writing and changing (and still writing and changing), I released Martha's Sister, Beloved Prodigal to Reagan Colbert.
She volunteered to do a beta read. I promise she isn't my mother. We haven't met.
"I will start off by saying that I absolutely LOVED this book. It had plot twists that always kept me reading, and took turns that I never would have expected. It wasn’t boring at all. (I asked her to point out boring parts).
The positive points of this book were definitely the character personalities, the plot, and the historical accuracy. The facts, terms, and customs you portrayed matched the era so perfectly, making it easy to slip into the story and see the world around it. I learned a lot about the customs of the first century that I never knew.
You did an awesome job with the characters, taking real historical figures and giving them real, lovable personalities. When you read about them in the Bible, you really don’t tend to think about their personal lives, struggles, and feelings about certain events. This definitely put a whole new perspective on the Biblical story!"
She went on to point out some possible changes but at this point they didn't hurt.
Check out her book, The Hidden Soul on Amazon. She explores the crucifixion through the eyes of the centurion who pounded the nails.
