I’m looking for beta readers. As you can probably tell from my sample chapters and this post, punctuation and grammar are not my strengths.
What’s a beta reader? Beta readers are volunteers who get to read my books for free in return for giving me feedback. If you find errors in my work that I end up incorporating into any of my books, I will credit you in that book and I will mail you a signed print copy of the book.
One of the coolest things about self-publishing with eBooks and print on demand (POD) is that I can update books as I find errors at any time without cost. The eBooks are corrected within twenty-four hours and forty-eight hours for print books. Eventually any mistake you help me find will make it into all of my work; so there is no due date for your corrections. I’d prefer to find my errors sooner than later but I’d rather correct my errors late than not at all. Your credited name will be seen by everyone who buys my book after your corrections have been uploaded.
I also need beta readers who are willing to critique the books I’m currently writing. I’m currently working on Mythic Hero, book II of the Paladin Files.
Please feel free to give me negative advice. I’ll admit I don’t like hearing that I suck—but if I’m doing something stupid and wrong, or you know a better way, I’m eager to hear what you have to say and steal your idea.
The way to become a beta reader is to post a comment and then I will contact you by email. Let me know if you have a preference of which book you’d like to work on. You’ll need to have MS Word or Open Office. Open Office is a free word processing program. Google ‘Open Office’ and you’ll be able to find a free download site.
Be warned if you do a good job for me I will send you more work.
All of the covers I’m using are drawn by me. If you are an artist and think you can do a better job than me, please let me know.
I want to turn all my books into graphic novels. I wish I had the time to draw them myself. I’m looking for artists who have the skills to help me. If you are interested, please post a comment and I will contact you by email.
