How to become a Beta Reader
There is a waiting list, but it has been moving quickly this year. Most people who volunteer do not realize how serious or hard of a job this actually is. Time-consuming is a gross understatement and there is no pay. Many people simply drop out without notice and then become afraid to answer my messages. (There's no need. Just email me and say you can't do it anymore. No hard feelings, no crying or rants.) This causes a high turn-over rate.
To become a Beta, please add your name to the list, along with the details below, and you will be contacted as soon as a slot opens up. I won't have more than a dozen Betas at a time. It is too hard to keep up with them and everything else I have going on.
