Beta reading is not editing and will not require you to search for grammar or punctuation mistakes within the manuscript. Unless you can't help yourself then by all means. :)
If interested, you will receive part or a whole manuscript and are requested to provide feedback about that particular section which may include characters, plotting, scenes, punctuation, grammar, etc. Whatever you feel would provide the best feedback. If you like to go through it multiple times for different areas of the process, really, who am I to stop you? Just know that I am eternally grateful for any and all of your feedback!
A deadline may be given to respond as I am on a production schedule and wish to not veer from it.
See below on how to qualify.
2. If you are interested, please complete the application that follows and please be truthful in your answers. (There is nothing more important that trust and honesty between working partners, which is essentially what we would be.)
3. Once complete I will review each application and will get back to you via email as soon as I can with a response. Unfortunately, in the case there is an overflow of applications, I may not be able to keep my head on straight to work with so many people, but as I'm just starting, you may not need to worry.
4. To qualify for your free copy of the completed ebook in your choice of format, you must, to the best of your ability, providing constructive feedback during the beta reading process. Please provide reasons for your answers. For example, please don’t just reply with “I liked the character, setting, plot.” Please tell my why you liked the character(s), setting, plot, etc. That information will give me a better understanding of how you as the reader are seeing my work.
5. There will be an agreed upon period of one to two months to see if we work well together and will part ways with no questions asked if either party is not satisfied, if it really comes to that.
Note: Not everyone will become a beta reader at this time as I am only filling a few spots. If you would like to be further notified on openings or updates please be sure to answer the last two questions. (I feel I need to put this just in case, so please bear with me.)
