Why should I get a critique?
What will Best Beta Reader look for that matters to my readers?
Alright, that's important stuff. I would like to have someone I can trust take a second look at my manuscript.
How do I know I can trust Best Beta Reader?
I am happy you asked that question!
I'm Aldus Baker, author and podcaster. My podcast introduces readers to authors through an interview and discussion of one of their books. I read the books first. The podcast is not a book critique, but it reminded me of the value of well intentioned and well informed feedback.
First Beta Reader lets me exercise my critique skills. I dive deeper into your writing and give you valuable written feedback.
First Beta Reader does what I want my beta readers to do. It points out specific issues that damage the reader experience and praises things that let readers live in and feel connected with your story.
