Ever wonder about how to choose initial readers? I have! So here is the article “How to Choose the Best Beta Readers for Your Book (and avoid the worst)” to help shape your thinking on the subject.
To be honest, though, no matter how much thinking you put into it, it may be hard to find helpful readers. People just do not read like they used to!
But the antidote I try to tell myself is to write what I want to read. That is, we aren’t the best beta readers for our own stuff either, 🙂 but we needn’t sell ourselves short.
Happy reading, writing & weekending!
