Amy - I just want to drop you a note to let you know that your typo-killer team has done a wonderful job on Lethal Voyage! I have received detailed feedback from four readers (so far) and the level of attention they applied to my book far exceeded my expectations. A few provided notes and suggestions going far beyond just spotting typos. Despite being professionally edited, I've already made about 30 corrections to the text, which I'm now able to process before the publication date. This is by far the best $50 I spent on my book project. I'll be using the Typo Killers on every book going forward. They are amazing! Thanks so much for running this program.

Your program is fantastic. I've had many positive responses and the corrections are worth gold. Kudos.

...Also wanted to tell you the Beta Readers were fabulous!! Met and exceeded my expectations. Thank you.
– Nora LeDuc
I just wanted to let you know that I contacted every one of the potential Beta readers who responded and have been really delighted by the response. My email software says that of 59 people, 37 have so far opened the email and 23 have so far downloaded the book.
What's amazing to me is that I already have three really thorough responses, people who have really put time and effort into making truly useful comments that will help me make the book better.
For the last fifteen months I have been working with a marketing company who were unable to do anything even half as useful and I really look forward to trying out your other services.

Thank you for allowing me to Beta read for the authors you represent.
It has been a privilege to read their work and I have become friends with many of the writers. I have looked forward to each novel.
Being a Beta reader has been a wonderful experience far exceeding my expectations.
I was very pleased to get 15 names rather than three!...I got some great suggestions and needed corrections from the group, improving my manuscript greatly. ...This was a great help to me and a bargain for the buck - thanks again!

Beta Reader Program
Need Beta Readers for your work-in-progress?
We've collected a dedicated group of avid readers eager to beta read your newest masterpiece. Let us find you a "love match!" We'll match you with readers who appreciate your genre.
Just fill out the form and we'll find you 3-50 readers (depends on genre/interest). If you only get a few (rare) and you're unhappy with them, I'll get you more.
Why use a beta reader?
Every author knows there comes a point when you just can't re-read your own book anymore. We're too close to the story - sometimes we can't see obvious plot holes or forgotten promises or other problems because the answers are in our heads!
Beta readers represent your future audience and can tell you about problems they had enjoying or understanding your story before you take your book to market and have scores of people tell you about these problems by way of bad reviews.
