It’s easy for me as a writer to get so lost in the world and characters I create, that I no longer see what fresh eyes will catch. I think every writer experience this; you know the story so well that you forget to show a thing or two to the reader. That’s where a beta reader comes in.
Beta readers are lifesavers who love to read and give criticism to books that are not yet published. So when I feel that the manuscript is as good as I can get it, I send it to five beta readers. In one week, they read and answer questions with brutal honesty, explaining why they don’t enjoy a character, a twist, a scene. Or why they do. In short, they show me what a stranger would think and open my eyes to the details I no longer could see before sending it to them. They make the book better.
If you want to beta read books I write, please fill out this form and I’ll get in touch.
