Things have been quiet around here again, but I’m going to blame that on my deep involvement in edit-land, because I emerge from the silence on the search for those who might like to volunteer their time to helping me make my book even better. The Slayer Saga: Heartless is ready for beta readers. I’m looking for anyone willing to give it a look, to offer anything from broad, sweeping generalizations to the most minute line edits imaginable. The document is about 110 pages in 12 pt Courier, just about 400 words shy of 50,000. Have you read The Slayer Saga: Soulless? Excellent! You can help me know how well it continues the saga. You haven’t read The Slayer Saga: Soulless? Hey, that’s awesome, too! You can give me a perspective from someone who might not know what the hell is really going on.
Generally, I would love, love, love to have edits and responses and thoughts back by the start of July, so that I can implement changes or brush things up for publication in August. Even if you can’t get it completely finished by then, any help is good help.
Please let me know, either in the comments or via email, if you’re interested in giving it a go. I’d also like to offer anyone who beta reads Heartless a free paperback copy once it’s out and into the world.
Thanks, everyone! Cheers!
It seems it always happens when you need beta readers that I have line editing jobs lined up and don’t have time. *sigh* I have three in the works. I’ll send you a message later, and we’ll talk about time frames. I might be able to do it.
Always so busy! Don’t sweat it; if you get the chance, of course I’d love to have you look at it, though!
Hi Laura, not sure what “Beta” refers to, but, I would love to read “Heartless” for you. Let me know if I qualify! Hugs, Ingrid.
I now know what a Beta Reader is! I am a sticker for punctuation, grammar and spelling, having been a litigation paralegal for many years. So, I am still interested! J Let me know your thoughts on the drafts I sent you.
Ooh, wonderful! It’ll be great to have your thoughts, especially since your name is tied to the book, too! You’ll get an email from me shortly.
