Wow. That's all I can say. Wow!
Responses from those I approached to beta-read my latest WIP were overwhelmingly positive. I am truly surprised and humbled and immensely grateful! I cannot put into words how heartening it was, hearing them express their interest in my work.
Here were some responses:
"I would love to read your novel! A shared Google docs would be fine. I do most of my reading on an iPad now. I am excited to hear that you are almost done. "
"Always willing to help. Send it to my school site…"
" I would love to read it! I'd prefer a hard copy."
"Wow!!! I'm so honored to read your stuff! Yes! Of course I'll read it!! "
" We would be delighted to read it first hand! "
There are eight readers in all, and I'm excited to finish line-editing.
