Buy My Book, Be My Beta-Reader?
There’s an interesting post on a wordpress blog by someone who calls herself VacuousMinx, on rushing to publish. She talks about an author who’s been engaging her reviewers, making changes to her book based on reader suggestions and re-uploading, if there’s such a word, to Amazon. At what point do you cross the line from engaging readers of your books, to using them as your beta readers?
Apparently another author made changes to her book based on reader feedback (the 1 star ones), and i now sells both versions online; f she gets complaints about the ending, she suggests the reader buy the other copy as well.
What do you think about this?
