So you've written a book. Now what? Many authors use "beta" readers. That is, a person who will read your book draft and give you constructive criticism.

 

The writer, Michael La Ronn, shares some thought-provoking suggestions on how to find your perfect beta reader through Goodreads.com. Goodreads was just purchased by Amazon, so it could be the perfect match for author and reader.

 

Apparently, YA, epic fantasy, romance, and sci-fi authors may have an easier time finding their readers. Persistence is the key, according to La Ronn, and he gives several great tips on searching for and cultivating the author/beta reader relationship.

I love reading books on my KINDLE and being able to save my notes and highlights. I also love EVERNOTE (a digital brain), which gives you the ability to clip and save articles from all over the web. Now, I find that all my Kindle notes and highlights can be saved to Evernote!

 

I had no idea that I had a "unique" Amazon Kindle page that shows me a list of all my books, with links to the notes and highlights, progress on each of the books, and ratings. The easy-to-follow steps in this article make it a no-brainer to transfer this info into Evernote. If you do reviews on Amazon, this makes it a snap to save the notes and then pull them up before you leave your reviews.
