Howling All Beta Readers

As  I  continue  to  edit  Nature’s  Destiny,  I  can’t  switch  my  mind  off  from  the  many  self-publishing  tasks  ahead.  Today’s  thought  of  choice  is  Beta  Readers,  and  the  irony  of  this  title  isn’t  lost  on  me.

I  have  researched and pondered  many  times  over  this  topic,  and  inevitably  questioned  whether  anyone  would  even  want  to  Beta  Read  my  novel.  It  is  such  a  trusting  nature,  to  send  off  your  pride  and  joy  to  someone  unknown,  in  the  hopes  that  they  won’t  tear  it  apart  completely.  I  know  as  a  general  rule,  that  I  won’t  please  everyone,  but  the  majority?  Yes  please!

That  means  feedback  is  the  only  way  forward.

I  have  an  awesome,  talented,  writer  buddy  whose  promised  to  read  my  novel  –  providing  I  haven’t  scared  her  off  already.  I  value  her  opinion, and  I’m  really  excited  to  hear  what  she  has  to  say  about  it.

 I’m  getting  ahead  of  myself,  because  as  I  say,  I’m  only  at  the  editing  stage  now,  but  I  like  to  be  prepared.  It’s  good  to  have  a  schedule,  right?

So  I’m  wondering,  are   there  any  other  Beta  Readers  out  there  who’d  like  to  read  my  novel  when  it’s  ready?
