Those of you that are regular readers of my blog will know that my latest novel, The Soul Hunter, is reader for beta-readers. A beta-reader, or beta, is someone who reads through novel prior to release to check things like grammar, characterization, continuity etc.
Before I handed my novel over (in addition to holding my breath and crossing my fingers) I decided to make up a sheet with several questions for the beta’s to answer in order to get more specific feedback about my book. So after some research I came up with the list of 7 questions below, which I thought I would share with you all. Feel free to pilfer, pillage and share.
Also, I am on the lookout for some more Beta-readers. So if you are interested in reading a novel about a Demon trying to find her happily-ever-after in Hell leave me a comment with an email address or some other way I can get in contact with you so we can start up a dialogue.
Did you find yourself skimming at any point in the book? Did you get bored?Did the story hold your interest from the very beginning?
Was the ending satisfying?
Did you notice any discrepancies or inconsistences in time sequence, places, characters?
Was there anything you found confusing?
Were the characters believable and interesting?
Was the story well-paced?
Was there anything in specific that you loved/hated about the book?
As always I love hearing from you.
