Yep, it’s short notice time! I am going to start my Beta Read for “Tales From the Dream Nebula: Dreams Within Dreams” as of June 1st, 2022. It’s about 28500 words long, which is about 87 pages. The beta read will wrap up on June 30th. All those who get feedback to me by then will be considered to have participated and be credited.
For those who are interested in giving feedback before this goes to publication, email me and let me know of your interest. I still have some room for people to join in.
What you get:
A copy of the beta read manuscript and a questionnaire to fill out with your thoughts and proofread corrections (grammar/punctuation stuff me and my editors and alpha readers missed).
Please be thorough in your thoughts on what you’ve read. Yes I really want to know, even if you didn’t like something. Please be honest. Constructive but honest. My ego can handle negative criticism, just not trolling. };c<
I would also request as part of the process that once the book launches you can provide a review on Amazon, Goodreads, Smashwords, Kobo/Rakuten… wherever the book is released or even on your own blog. Anything that would help let people know what you thought of the book and get the word out. Of course, do tell what you really think. Even a meh/bad review is a help in some form, although I do love me some 5 star if deserving.
For participation, you will get a free ebook AND adding you to the thanks/acknowledgments section at the end of the book, so you can brag to all your friends you have your hipster cred and were in the first wave of this cool new universe! Beta readers will also be given future opportunities to be involved in other beta reads, and potentially other associated projects coming down the pike like RPG testing (in early development), music, associated art/merch options that can be set up going forward.
So whatdaya say? Sound like something fun to do with your Kindle/Reader this June while on vacation?
Let me know asap. This opportunity ends Jun 8th.
