The last few edits are now in. Early next week we’ll be printing off the advanced review version of the paperback for beta team members. We’ll randomly select beta team members this coming Saturday.
The beta reader idea works like this: we give you an advanced review copy of a paperback book. You read it and alert us to any show-stoppers that got through editing (such as typos). Then, to say thanks, when the final edition is published, we will send you a paperback with your name in the acknowledgements.
If you want a chance to be in the beta team for The Last Sunset or any other book, just leave a comment, or tweet us.
*raises hand* beta reader – any book – please ?!?
Thanks, Kristina. I’ll be doing the selection for Last Sunset tomorrow. If not that one, then there’s plenty more coming over the next few months.
Hi Tim, I’d really like to be on the beta team! For this book and for others too. I’m reviewing books all the time anyway so I’d love to be able to help you out too!
Thanks. I’ve got a feeling you’d like this one. I’ve lost count of how many people have asked to join up so I’m not sure if we’re oversubscribed yet for the next book. I’ll take a look tomorrow and let you know.
Oh, and I seem to remember you thought the Reality War was okay. I’ve got book2 back from the editor but struggling to find the time to tidy up and finish off with all the other Greyhart activity. If you wanted a review copy of that one, just let me know.
Well I’ll keep my fingers crossed for this one!
I did indeed enjoy the Reality War and would definitely be up for finding out what happens in book 2, so yes please feel free to send it my way if it will help you. I’m happy to give my opinion or help with a final edit or whatever you need.
Thanks. Much appreciated.
Happy to Beta read for you if you need me. Gill
Many thanks, I’ve got plenty coming up for you to read if you’re interested.
Sure, anytime… it’s what I’m good at, lying in bed with a book 🙂
It’s a useful skill 🙂
You have to practice alot to get it just right 🙂
I’m sure I can send some more practice material your way soon.
I’d be more than happy to be part of your Beta program. Am very excited to a part of bring new and great writing to the public
Thanks, Elliot. We’ve also got a collection from Andy West coming in a few months. I seem to remember you enjoyed one of his earlier stories.
