Beta Reading 2014 Style

I can honestly say that one of the best evenings ever was having my bestest bestie in the world beta reading my novel and keeping up a steady Facebook comment stream.

First, it is instant typo repair and ferreting out a couple of small continuity issues. 

"How do they know there isn't anybody left in the barn?"

"Just a second . . . "


"They do now. There isn't anybody in the barn."

Second, and even more fun, was the commentary.

"You did not just tase him."


"Shit be getting real . . ."

"Oh, just wait."

I highly recommend this to everyone who has a sense of humor about their own work and someone close to them that believes in them.
