How to become a Beta Reader
Update: I am full for 2021. Thank you for wanting to help me! You can still send errors to my email below. I can add you to the waiting list, but it may be a while. I am way over the normal number of Betas right now. And I'm grateful for every single one of them.
There is a waiting list, but it has been moving quickly this year. Most people who volunteer do not realize how serious or hard 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 prefer not to have more than a dozen Betas at a time. It is too hard to keep up with that many files and everything else I have going on.
