A writer pores their hearts and souls into their work.  But sometimes that isn’t enough.  Sometimes, authors require a second set of eyes.

I am in debt to literate / literary friends who volunteer reviewed my manuscript in various stages of development.  A “beta reader” is a friend or colleague whose willing   to look over your book’s draft, and point out errors before you submit to agents and to publishers. These kindhearted folks do there best to keep the author from looking like nincompoop with typos & plot holes.

How many errors did you catch in the above two paragraphs?

To give you an idea how long WHO IS TO BLAME was in the works,  Sarah was in college when she proofread my manuscript, and now she’s a mother-of-two and successful career woman!

Thanks to (top row) Sarah, Joan, Melinda   (bottom row) Jon, Holly
