What is a Beta Reader?
I'm still working out the details on this, but basically:
- You will receive an advance copy of the manuscript before submitting to publishing/proofing
- You will be able to offer suggestions about the story, characters, environment ...
pretty much anything
- You will receive some reward for your efforts (to be decided)
- You will receive a notable mention on this website for your efforts
- Be an avid reader, who enjoys a wide variety of genres of books
- Be able to provide constructive criticism (not just "That's s**t, I don't like it")
- Be willing to discuss any thoughts you provide by email (telephony scares me)
At the end of the day, I'm writing this book to be read by people like you. I want
to make sure the experience excites and provides enjoyment. I don't want to bore
the behind off people (although this is a distinct possibility).
