What is a beta reader? Beta readers read books and provide feedback to an author prior to publication. The reader will read the book with the intention of giving the author information on what works and doesn’t in the book, so the author can make the book the best it can be before it’s released to the general public.
So, if you’re someone who enjoys reading and often thinks you wish you’d been able to tell an author about a problem or issue before publication, then you might want to consider becoming a beta reader.
I will provide specific questions that need to be answered in relation to the book and will enthusiastically anticipate specific answers to those questions as well as any other feedback you might have for me – good and not so good. 🙂
Since this is not a paid service you might wonder what’s in it for you. You get to read a book before anyone else. And, you get to have input on a project before the general public ever sees it. Most importantly, you’ll get my undying gratitude.
I will normally send out a book and provide you with two weeks to read and submit your feedback. I can’t really offer longer than that as it would affect my publishing schedule. Please only apply if you know you can adhere to this schedule.
Interested? Because there are only a few spots available for each book and because I write different genres, I’ve created an application so I’ll know if a book is right for you. Please take a moment to fill out this application and when I have a book I think fits, I’ll let you know.
