As many of you have seen my reading has been put on hold with exception of audible books for the last couple of weeks.
The reason for this is that I’ve taken the opportunity to beta read for an author friend of mine.
I’m thoroughly enjoying the experience of working with the author to provide feedback on a first (rough) draft of their book. Seeing the book evolve from a rough draft to a more polished draft has been quite the entertaining and enlightening experience.
I’ve learned a few lessons in beta reading (both past and present), and there are some that I was taught before I ever beta read. I thought I would pass some tips along.
I have the best boss in the world. He rented a theater for Star Wars VII: The Force Awakens on opening day, and yes, I was there to see the movie. Now you’re asking yourself why I waited two weeks to post my review (or if your one of my loyal readers, maybe you’re not as you know I’m generally not the most prompt poster).
In this case, it was an intentional decision not to post immediately. I wanted to give people a chance to see the movie before I posted, as I couldn’t post my review spoiler free. If you haven’t seen the movie and don’t want a spoiler, you might want to stop reading here. I will try to not give major spoilers.
