Enlisting beta readers is a critical first step in your external editing journey. Beta readers read your manuscript and provide you with concrete feedback from the perspective of a reader. They can help you find plot holes, character flaws, likeability, and ease of reading concerns that you may be too close to see.
Therefore, we’ve designed this service to help authors find qualified beta readers to give authors constructive feedback to help your book be the best it can be.

What is this program and what makes it different from finding betas yourself?
This program serves authors looking for useful first-step reader feedback, but who don’t want the hassle of finding their own betas. With our program, you are guaranteed constructive feedback from trained beta readers. They are avid readers in your genre and they know what to be on the lookout for. Furthermore, we compensate our beta readers for their time and to encourage the return of their feedback forms.
What’s better is that our readers are experienced, having already provided valuable feedback on books like yours. Moreover, you and our betas remain anonymous to keep all responses and manuscripts private and honest. Lastly, the program is structured around a dedicated feedback form for your project with specific questions the beta readers answer. This structure provides you with multiple points of view focused on important topics to help you make necessary improvements.
