The Epiphany Beta Readers Club

The Epiphany Series is an epic mythic fantasy set in an alternate/parallel universe centering on the goddess Gaia, her partner Xistence, and all of their otherworldy creations.

One of the biggest motivations for tackling the challenge of becoming a better writer is Epiphany. I live with the characters, sleep with the storylines, and daydream about the possibilities.

The Epiphany Beta Readers Club is for anyone interested in going on the journey of writing a novel. Content will feature the entire process, from writing the origin story and developing the plot, all the way up to querying agents.

The Club is currently open to new membership, only looking to fill 3-5 more slotsplease e-mail Herstun with a brief bio and reason you are interested to receive special content!
