ADVANCE READERS for The Marquis, the Escape and the Forge  

The third book in the Epic Revolutionary Saga (August 1776-June 1778) covering events from the Battle of New York with the arrival of British forces through Valley Forge, including the Marquis de Lafayette's escape from France to come fight alongside George Washington.

While Jenny works on her next exciting novel, The Marquis, the Escape and the Forge (2022), we'll post opportunities for readers to become advance readers here.  

What does it mean to be an advance reader?

When Jenny finishes writing her book, she chooses about 25 advance readers to read and review it before it goes to press. Advance readers will receive one of only 100 advance reading copies of the manuscript and have about a month to read it in full. They will provide a review comment that will be printed in the final published copy, with the advance reader's name, age, and hometown. This is a fun, challenging, and exciting opportunity for diligent readers to get to read one of Jenny's epic novels before the rest of the world, and get their name in print as well!

How do I apply to be an Advance Reader?
Since we have hundreds of readers apply to be Advance Readers, we're doing a series of challenges and contests for readers to earn the opportunity. Sometimes it's a surprise, sometimes it's announced ahead of time. All opportunities will be posted here, so check back if you miss one. To make sure you don't miss it, be sure to subscribe to Epic E-News!
