It's called. "Dispelling the Clouds, a desperate social experiment."
In some ways it is a memoir of my life's work.
Since there have been many embarrassing failed attempts to tell this story, I decided I would need to run it past a few Beta readers before I would publish it.
Here is the role a Beta reader plays in a writer's world.
Beta readers review finished manuscripts before they're published, providing the author with feedback from the reader’s point of view.
Beta readers can be friends or family members — anyone who will approach the book as a casual reader, pointing out things they liked and disliked, and highlighting the elements writers become blind to during countless revisions.
A Beta reader is the opposite of an alpha reader: the first person who reads and provides feedback on your manuscript, usually while it’s still a first draft.
Beta readers also differ from critique partners as the former reviews the book from the reader perspective, while the latter looks at a manuscript with a writer’s eye — paying close attention to any craft issues.
A Beta reader is a sensitive reader willing to provide feedback.
I sent out a call for Beta Readers!
In record time I had enough requests - and all my 50 draft MANUSCRIPTS were gone!.
We need someone else to get close enough to tell us we’re wrong.
Someone we trust.” David Levithan
