Heyo girls. It’s time for Beta Reader signups!
This is the second time in the history of my life I’m asking for beta readers. I’m SO stinking’ excited for this story it’s insane.
Some of you were around for the whole journey for Dewdrops and Butterflies, and you’ll remember how excited I was about that one. This one is going to be just as epic.
I would normally place the cover here BUT that part is still a secret, and the cover reveal is also in planning. I have a daaaate. But first Beta readers, so Here is where you can sign up.
Playgrounds and Black Markers is aimed at a YA, (Young Adult) genre and discusses things like addiction, boyfriends and girlfriends, hatred and family. There is no language content (the word Jerk and idiot is used a few times) and no sensual romantic content.
The novel is currently 106k words. It’s not too much longer than my debut. I’m mostly looking for grammar correction, but also input on plot consistency and pace and character development!
Beta Reader Details
The dates for Beta readers are strictly December 1st to January 1st. The cover reveal comes soon after that.
If you are good at grammar and/or punctuation (especially commas) and you have time to sit down and read it for me, I would SO appreciate it. I’m look for at least 6 or 7 beta readers. The more the merrier. I know it’s the holiday season, so your time is extra appreciated.
In your welcome email, you’ll also receive a link for the form you can fill out after reading the book to share specific points that I needed help with, and you can read through that before you get started so you can know what to keep an eye out. I thought that would be helpful just for you as the beta reader to have specific questions to answer rather than just sort of giving me a rough idea of what you thought.
Again, here is the link to sign up.
If you do not think you’ll be able to finish reading it in one month, go ahead and sign up anyway. Just drop a note in the “Additional comments” section letting me know that you may not be able to finish.
Thank you girls! Spread the word if you know of someone who is a good beta reader.
