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. We currently have 7 remaining slots for The Marquis, the Escape, and the Forge. These will be filled by entries from a survey that will be posted on this page in SPRING 2022. If you want to be notified when the survey becomes available, become an EPIC FAN by subscribing to EPIC ENEWS on the Contact Page by filling in your email address and hitting "submit." ("Contact Jenny" is listed below the Epic Fan submission, but please note that emailing Jenny does not register you to become an Advance Reader. But feel free to reach out to Jenny - she'd love to hear from you!)
