Types of Beta Readers

A Beta Reader is someone who evaluates your story. Long answer; they give you feedback on your story. They are like beta testers for software, looking for bugs and problems. A good beta reader points out holes in your plot, point of view problems, and chronology problems. They point out confusing areas and let you know if you’re describing things too much.

Today I’m covering the different types of Beta Readers, so you can figure out what you need for your book.

Plot, Flow, and Consistency Reader

This Beta Reader is concerned with the following:

Does your plot make sense?

Are there any holes in your plot? Where are the problem points?

Do your characters fit the plot? Where do they cause problems?

Does the story grab your attention? Where does it fail at this?

What This Beta Reader Doesn’t Do:

Spelling and Grammar

Awkward writing
