Beta Application/Interest Form
So you want to be a beta reader? That's great! I deeply appreciate your interest!
In order to make the most of the your skills, I have a few questions to ask before I send you materials.
Please keep in mind, while I appreciate your help, I really do need your input! By filling out this form, I may call on you in the future to beta for me (if you're interested). If I send you a book and you fulfill the basic requirements...I won't send you anything again. You will always be given the option to Opt-Out of a reading before materials are sent.
