Researcher breaks down beta-reader usage


Most pieces on beta readers (including one we shared from Writer’s Digest) focus on how to choose them and make the best use of them.

Barbara Linn Probst took a different angle in her recent post about beta readers — as a former qualitative researcher and current writer, she was more curious about how authors use them and how (or whether) they help.

See what she found about how writers actually use beta readers and what they would recommend to other authors on Jane Friedman’s blog.
