A Call for Beta Readers

Standard

Part of my editing team is looking for beta readers, if you’re interested you should check it out!

We’ll be needing beta readers soon.

Yes, that’s right: beta readers, plural. We’ve decided it’s not fair to LR to make him shoulder the responsibility alone. Also, we want to know how readers unfamiliar with the author’s other works will react to this story.

They do it because they can be involved in the process, get early access, credit in the SPECIAL THANKS and/or are already fans of the author. If you wanted paying gigs, you could do some freelance editing. That pays, and if you go to my ABOUT JR section you can find my editor. Reach out, he’ll be able to help you get started doing so. Good luck though! Hope the move goes well!
