Beta Reader Superhero: How to get and give amazing manuscript feedback by Belinda Pollard
Beta readers are the quiet superheroes of today’s publishing. They give a reader’s perspective, and show us the things about our books that we can’t see ourselves.
The trouble with beta readers…
“I can’t find the right ones.”
“They don’t respond in time.”
“They don’t give me anything useful.”
“They are too nice.”
“They broke my heart.”
Yes, I know how you feel. I have faced all the usual challenges managing the volunteers who give us feedback on our manuscripts.
But I have also come up with unique solutions, based on my work as a developmental book editor over the past two decades.
You, too, can have a great team on your side. This will be a practical book full of tips you can use straight away.
