A call for beta-readers and advance copy readers.
Part of the writing process that I work too, involves me sending out printed manuscripts and finished digital Ebooks to people who are part of my writing “tribe”. I do enjoy giving way free copies of the novels and short stories I have written, and thus I am now looking to bolster two important lists of people who are a part of that process.
I use beta-readers quite early on in the writing process as I seek clarification that the plot, structure and storyline make sense i.e. it will be readable. I need a little more of a time commitment from the beta-reader as I will post you a printed and bound manuscript, along with a list of questions you need to ask yourself as you read through it. Many of my beta-readers make detailed notes on the manuscript before mailing it back to me, which is exactly what I am looking for.
There is usually some kind of publication deadline that I will be working too, so I will email you individually to make sure that you are available to look at each new manuscript. I will limit the beta-readers to UK and Europe as I would also like to mail you a signed copy of the novel that you were involved with.
Advance Copy List
Readers on this list get free advance copies (finished work) before the work gets published. This will give you a chance to read the book before they go to market and it gives me a chance to get some honest feedback by way of a small review. A review which helps me sell more books which means I can then write more books. Click Here for more information about the importance of leaving a book review.
As I mainly produce eBooks, the advance copy will generally be a digital file for your laptop/eReader. I do, however, produce small print runs of my novels and you can also opt-in for a signed copy of one of those if you cherish the printed word.
Please feel free to pass this onto anyone who you feel would want to be involved in any of these lists. Both lists are critical to any writer’s process as we endeavour to get the best possible work out there as we can.
If you are interested in being added to either of the lists, I’d love to have you on board. Click here to send an email to me
Thank you in advance for getting involved.
