So here's a question I'm struggling with right now. I have heard some mixed thoughts on this concept so I thought I would throw it out there to you my writer friends to hear what you think.
1. Do you use beta readers for your work before you query and/or self-publish?
2. Who do you use?
a. Is it always the same people (if you've written multiple books)
b. Do you try to use people who are in your target audience
c. Do you use professional editor type people
3. How did you choose your readers?
4. Are you concerned with copyright issues for your ideas/words?
5. Would you be willing to beta read for other authors.
This last question I ask because I was thinking it might be nice to have a list of writers who wouldn't mind helping other writers out with this sort of thing. I'm going to be starting a special forum for those who would like to get feedback on their writing and connect them with people who wouldn't mind giving feedback. If this sounds like something you'd be interested in let me know and I can keep you posted on the details. Thanks!
