Your masterpiece is finally finished! Now what? The next step in your creative process is to engage with a good beta reader. Also known as a pre-reader or critique. Individuals who love books are avid readers, fans of specific genres, eat, breath and dream books. Books and the tales within are so to speak their “poison”, their drug and their ultimate escape. They read so many books that they easily spot inconsistencies, poor flow in the storyline, character flaws, lack in world-building, typos etc.
The beta reader will read your manuscript pre-publication and before you submit it for copy-editing and proofreading. Often saving you money on these services.
The purpose of having your book beta read is to receive a neutral, honest, unbiased, objective opinion of the material. This allowing you as a writer to make the necessary improvements or adjustments before your book is proofread, copy-edited, published and available in the marketplace for your fan base to devour.
