Episodes and Beta Readers
Okay, so it’s finally time.
Over the course of the next few months, starting in late November, I’ll be releasing Insurgent as six short episodic ebooks. Once the final episode is released, will be going to print with the dead tree version of the book, as well as a consolidated ebook.
I’m excited to finally be moving forward!
That said, I’m looking for a small group of volunteers as beta readers.
What you get as a beta reader:
First, my thanks, both personally, and in the acknowledgements in the book.
Second, the beta readers who participate will get a limited edition hardcover of Insurgent. I’ll only be printing 20 or so hardcovers, and one will go to you.
What does a beta reader do?
In short, you read the unfinished episodes as I prepare them for release. And you give me the unvarnished truth: what page were you on when you put it down? At what point did it put you to sleep? What sentence made you want to vomit because it was so badly written?
Beta readers will participate in a small and temporary google email group, and basically what I’m looking to do is crowdsource the process of making it a better book. I really need a small group of people who can really participate and give me the bad news before it goes out to the general public.
Interested? Please drop me an email or comment here. I plan to post the first episode (roughly 80 pages) to the beta reader group in about a week.
