Ahead of my scheduled post, I wanted to announce that I will be starting a reward system for beta readers.
- On-site access to deleted scenes and unreleased content (you get a subscriber sign-in so you can see all that).
- Coupons for heavy (up to 100%) discounts on any of my novels or books which aren’t already going out free. Bear in mind that for now, I only distribute e-books. If I do printed books in the future, I have no idea yet how I’ll coupon those.
- Acknowledgement for whichever books or stories you beta.
Now this does imply that a commitment is required. On the other hand, with your involvement, you’re free to choose which story or stories you want to see improved and worked on. Beta readers can have a positive impact on the quality of the content, greatly aiding and speeding along the editing process because I won’t have to guess what people will think about a new piece or an edited piece of writing.
The beta programme will officially start after the A-Z challenge on 1st May 2014, but you’re free to drop by and get involved this month if you like. Hint hint. 😉
