Many authors choose to work with test readers and I would like to invite you to join my little army, all of who help me when I write my novels and scripts. What’s involved? Well, I send you chapters as I write them and you simply do the thing you already love doing - reading!* Ok, it's not quite as simple as that, you do have to give me your feedback, which is done through question and answer sheets. As a writer it's important for me to tap into your feelings as you read - to know what's working and what isn't. Whether you've spotted any inconsistencies with the plot, characters, period authenticity, etc and much more. Finally, I take all your feedback and work through it with my editors before doing any re-writes ahead of publication .
Test reading can be real fun, it's not about being a proof reader, it's about being part of a story's evolution and contributing to the final output of a novel. However, it can occasionally be tiresome, having to re-read passages/chapters and go through minor changes, so please only volunteer if the idea truly appeals to you.
*Please note this is not a paid position. Any involvement is purely on a voluntary basis.
