Good Morning everyone! Today’s the first day in a couple weeks I’ve had a quiet moment to just sit down and write. It’s got me wondering if I should revisit book one of my series, or keep plunging ahead with book two.. .
I’ve done all the editing I possibly can on book one (three rounds, to be exact); so it would be nice to have new eyes on it. As someone who can’t commit financially to an editor just yet, beta readers are a good option. What advice do you guys have on getting reliable beta readers? Should they be people you know or complete strangers? I tried recruiting my cousins, and they were super excited, but they ultimately fell through, unfortunately. Trying to mask your hurt/disappointment in person is definitely a downside when beta readers are people you know.. - 5 minutes ago
