A beta reader . . .
is someone who reads an author’s work (his novel, for instance) before it is published and offers him feedback (either general or more detailed information, whatever the reader chooses to give) about the work he or she is reading.
If you’ve followed this blog, you’ve probably noticed that I regularly make available chapters from my current work—Datesville: Out of the Land of Bondage!—for my beta readers to read. That work is generally protected with a password so is not usually available to the general public.
But I’m thinking of expanding my beta reader corps by adding a few more select readers. Perhaps you’d be interested in volunteering?
If you are interested in becoming a beta reader for Datesville: Out of the Land of Bondage! and offering your feedback in the form of comments on the beta reader posts, please post a comment below expressing that interest. And if you have a blog or website, please send me a link to it so I can get to know you and your interests, too. Those who love reading American literature and fellow writers are especially encouraged to join us. If you’d like to contact me via email, you can do so at [email protected] Hope to hear from you soon.
