FAQ

What is a beta reader?

Beta readers are people who volunteer to read books by authors prior to publication or the release date. You do not have to be an academic and are not required to edit to replace an editor. Instead, you offer your time to read and give the author constructive criticism and share their opinions. You can make suggestions to edit if you wish but check in with the author first.

How long will it take?
Overall we require feedback within two weeks, however, should you wish to notify the author to let them know before hand and they may extend it for another two weeks. Thereafter there are no more extensions.
You can read the book in segments. We truly appreciate your time if not done in one day. however we require your honest feedback, therefore don’t feel rushed to complete the book sooner.
I am not an academic/expert can I still take part?
Anyone who loves reading between the age of 16 and above. You may be an avid reader wanting to hone your editing skills, a teacher holding literacy classes, an editor, a historical writer, a blogger, or a book critique.
Do I get paid?
If you choose to complete the book including error checks within one week, you will be offered a £10 voucher. (For UK residents only)
Will I have to give my personal details to have the book delivered?
