Waiting with beta’d breath

Well, my #novel is off to two beta readers, and the first has already finished reading it. I was asleep when he asked for my email address last night (and given the time of day I woke up today, he most likely is asleep now) so it will be a bit before I get my #critique back, but I’m pleased that I was able to find someone that not only was able to read it in less than the month I was asking for but in just one short day! He did tell me in the message he sent that it was an enjoyable read, but that doesn’t mean I don’t have changes that need to be made. It will be interesting to see what a complete and total stranger will have to say after reading the whole thing in one sitting.

The other beta reader still has that month, and I’m not too worried about it. This reader I’m more familiar with, and I know he will be a brutal critic if needed.

I’m excited to move on to the next round of revisions before I send it off for the next edit. Getting closer and closer to being sent into the scary land of publishers!
