No writer can work in an echo chamber or in a ‘yes’ factory. So, to that end, I have always tried to work with a core of beta readers and editors: people who like the project but are more than willing to tell me ‘that, that is stupid’ or ‘what the heck’ or many more colorful exclamations when I make a major misstep. I am eternally indebted to each and every one of them.
However, several of my top beta readers are out of action for the near future. Major personal obligations or familial emergencies have taken up their time and, despite any objections from them, I have given them my full support to ignore the reading and just take care of business. Their problems and futures are far more important than a few books.
So, long story still kind of long, I have a need for beta readers. I need people who aren’t afraid to be critical to help turn my last two books (for the short term) into masterpieces and, heck, I’m not afraid to publish new editions of old works if the input is sound enough. I need people who want to stick their arms elbow-deep into the creative process and turn good material into the best of end results.
Oh, you get free books! All three books of whichever series you wish to beta read … or both, if you want to read both. Also, obviously, you’ll get the last two books before their release and get every update along the way.
