Betas were selected. No more beta requests will be accepted.
The next beta will be for White Hot or galleys of Magic Binds. People who haven’t been selected for the CE beta for Magic Bites but made it on the short list will get an invite for the ARC/galley beta edit.
We’ve received the copy edit for Magic Binds and now it’s your chance to help us make the book better.
What is required: at this stage of the process, we’re looking for reader reactions, unclear wording, inconsistencies, and sentence and word issues.
If something doesn’t make sense, we want to know. If something is an egregious grammatical error, we want to know. If the character teleported across the room without any magical explanation, we want to know. If the character’s hair was described as dark brown in Magic Breaks, but is now light brown, and he isn’t the type to frequent salons, we want to know.
How to make corrections: please put your corrections in by using the comment feature of MS Word or equivalent word processing software.
When is the deadline: we need to receive your feedback by May 22nd.
How much will you be paid: nothing. This is a volunteer position for a terribly annoying amount of work. Your name will be mentioned in acknowledgments and you get to read the book early. And then you will have to sit on all this knowledge, although a separate private place maybe provided to you to discuss the book with other betas.
YOU WILL NEED TO SIGN AN NDA: This means you will have to give us your real name and address. This book is a spoiler riding on a spoiler and using a spoiler for a whip and we’re taking no chances.
Preference will be given to previous betas.
To apply for this beta read: do not apply, beta readers selection is over.
I’m a reviewer and I’m doing this so I could get an early ARC: I strongly recommend you wait until the galleys. The copy edit is a work-in-progress stage of the manuscript, and we’re still at the stage where we can make larger changes. The galleys are pretty much the final draft with only minor grammatical and setting errors. There may be significant differences between the book at this stage and the galleys.
