Finding beta readers was easy. I was a bit surprised how easy. There are lots of good people in the world willing to read your work for free and provide some feedback.
I joined goodreads – I had always been a lurker in the past – and posted to their community boards, asking for beta readers for my novelette. I got replies that very day.
I’m pleased with the results, too. I got helpful suggestions and positive feedback. What more could I ask for?
I’m waiting for a couple of others beta readers to get back to me; after that, I’ll try to find a good editor.
