One of my wonderful writers had some really flattering things to say about me. I think this is dangerous for my ego. 🙂
What is a beta reader?
A beta reader is not an editor or a proofreader. They are simply people who read over your novel before it is available publicly.
They provide general feedback on plot, characterization, descriptions, sentence structure, consistency, etc. For example, they could point out a story thread that is left unfinished; dialogue that seems out of character; a blue hat suddenly becoming a red hat; and, point out awkward sentences (like this one).
