This is a little (and I mean little) post on beta readers. If you don’t know what a beta reader is, don’t worry. I have used them but didn’t know the chic, book-world term I was supposed to call them. If you click on the Bibliocrunch link below, you’ll learn all about them. What you will also see is a bit better link to a blog by Belinda Pollard. His post will discuss what makes a good beta reader. I particularly like her comment of finding someone who knows the difference in “proper” English and the writers voice. They are not always the same thing. When you do find a good beta reader, be nice to them, very nice to them! They are wonderful people and a must have for any writer whether if you are going to self-publish or go the traditional route.
