Beta Readers Wanted

Not sure who’ll see this, but what the hell…

Looking for some trusted Beta Readers to read my book “Exits & Entrances: A Short Book of Short Stories”.  Will be published this October, so there’s a limited time frame. It’s seven stories with approximately 20,000 words. Looking for kind-hearted souls who just love to read this stuff for free. In lieu of money, I can give you credit in the book.

Whalebone Landing Road, Sag Harbor, NY, August, 2010

“It was a chilly April afternoon when my brother Jacques threw the last handful of my ashes in the Portuguese Jewish Cemetery on 11th Street, east of Sixth Avenue in Greenwich Village. Just a handful. Most of me went floating out to sea a few weeks earlier, off an inlet bay at the end of Whalebone Landing Road in Sag Harbor. My wife’s ashes were also placed near mine. Our daughter took the plastic bag containing her mother, and spread the chalky leftovers on top of the waves, where they dispersed in a milky form, flowing slowly with the swells, hovering for a while like an aquatic ghost as the water carried her out in laps, back to the shores of Havana where she was born.”
