“An alpha reader or beta reader (also spelled alphareader / betareader, or shortened to alpha / beta), also pre-reader or critiquer, is a non-professional reader who reads a written work, generally fiction, with the intent of looking over the material to find and improve elements such as grammar and spelling, as well as suggestions to improve the story, its characters, or its setting. Beta reading is typically done before the story is released for public consumption. Beta readers are not explicitly proofreaders or editors, but can serve in that context.
Elements highlighted by beta readers encompass things such as plot holes, problems with continuity, characterisation or believability; in fiction and non-fiction, the beta might also assist the author with fact-checking.“

I need as many as I can get! I have the book in .docx, .pdf, and .htm format; you choose 🙂
I like to bring my book ‘live’ two weeks before Halloween, so you’ll only have two weeks to read it. But if you do, and leave a review when my book goes live, I will be for ever in your debt… 🙂
Just in case you didn’t know what it’s about, here’s the blurb for the book:
Kate didn’t plan on becoming a super-strong, photo-phobic blood-sucker during ‘Black October,’ but when a vampire-like pandemic breaks out, she has to flee to from her country town to escape the ‘suckers.’
For a moment she thought she was safe, but she was wrong. Very wrong.
Thrown into turmoil, action and drama, and falling in love with a sucker to top it all off, Kate has no choice but to pretend she is a sucker too.
Will love lure her over to the dark side…?
