Beta Basics: How to Find, Use, and Love Beta Readers
Author and Historian
Do you need beta readers? If you write with the intent to publish, the answer is YES!
However, finding good beta readers is just a starting point. If you don’t know how to use them—or why you need them—you may be wasting a golden opportunity. A good beta reader is more than just a bookworm or a bibliophile…A LOT more. Annette Kassis discusses how she works with beta readers, what makes a good beta reader (and what makes a bad one!), and—perhaps most importantly—what you as the author can do to get the most out of the process.
Annette Kassis is the author of 3 works of Sacramento history: Sacramento on the Air; Prohibition in Sacramento; and Weinstock’s: Sacramento’s Finest Department Store. A repeat guest on Capital Public Radio’s “Insight with Beth Ruyak,” Annette has also appeared on C-Span’s Book TV and in the documentaries “The Sacramento Picture” and “Alhambra: Sacramento’s Palace of Fantasy.”
