Hello dear readers,
It was long back, almost a year ago, when I had invited beta readers for The Masquerade – my debut novel. But then my book took multiple revisions, faced a lot of issues and after nearly 5 edits and deletions, it is now in shape of a novel.
Meanwhile, my readers got married, had babies, joined colleges and new courses, have exams, forgotten that such a book existed or maybe moved on… In short – I’m inviting beta readers all over again.
Last time, I had refused a lot of people if they were new to me… as I was suffering from aftermath of plagiarism and didn’t trust anyone. This time, I am allowing the computer to pick selected beta readers from all those who are willing to do it… and I will let you know the names here only —
This is how it goes —
- 10 beta readers will be selected out of all those who comment on this post as ‘Me’ that’s it – just write ‘Me’ and your ‘wattpad id’ if any… so that I know who you are.
- You will be asked to provide your original email id, home address and phone number and a small declaration that you will keep the book safe and won’t leak it.
- You will be sent the book on your email address and you read it as per your convenience in a week’s time.
- You won’t be asked to edit or proofread as the book has been thoroughly edited, but if you find some glaring mistakes, do point it out with chapter number and page number.
- You will be asked to fill a small questionnaire that helps me decide if some parts are unclear or need any minor changes or whether the characters/ending /plot are justified. No detailed analysis required.
- After the book is released, leave an honest review on Amazon and goodreads.
- Please volunteer only if you can do this because I am giving it only to 10 people. If you don’t complete it, I will lose valuable feedback and another reader loses a chance.
What do you get?? ( Ahaaa…. That’s the fun part 😀 😀 )
- You get to read the book before everyone else 🙂
- You get an original signed copy of the book as a gift from me [ A token of gratitude ]
- Your name will be added in the acknowledgments section INSIDE the book.
- You get an invite to the launch of the book
So, all those who were beta readers previously also need to comment here as we are beginning the process all over agan.
Type away – ‘Me’ and ‘wattpad id’… and I will enter it in my computer jukebox to pick 10 names 😀 😀
