Adventures in Beta Reading
I love my betas. I have a particularly active beta reader who's been giving me a bit of anxiety, because I'm nervous at what they'll think, but has also made me freakin' die laughing. They've had some insightful comments, picked out some Easter eggs I hid throughout the work, and of course, found every little error that made it through my last edit.
But that's just part of it. The best part is seeing new people peek in and check out the work. Hearing someone mention their favorite character. Listening as someone says they didn't expect the ending that came up. That just jazzes me and makes me feel like "you know, maybe I CAN do this author thing."
But I still need more eyes. If anyone out there reading this wants to get in on the Beta Reading, hey, I'm always recruiting new betas. I have a Contact Page
where you can sign up to become a Beta, you can leave a comment in any of my blog posts, or you can hit me up on social media.
Hopefully, I'll get even more great betas, because right now, it's tough to beat the comments I've been getting. I'll leave you with my favorite comment so far.
