THE BETA -PLAY

A manuscript cannot reach the book market to be completed. The first reading and the opinion of professionals will allow you to have a return on the details which could be a brake on the progress of your work.

In addition to this, you need to know more about it.

Beta reading is the reading of a text by someone who is not the author, in order to help them improve it. Any text always contains elements that can be improved and modified. It is a reading that will offer avenues for reflection to the author to help him in his work of rewriting.


It is a precious benefit to have a detached look and a different angle for an author who is often in his story like a fish in water, but when is he the reader? The particularly delicate and tedious proofreading work.

Because it is particularly difficult to take a step back from your own writings and that an external critical look is very welcome, not to say essential.

It is therefore not a correction, but indeed a return giving a feeling and leads.

An analysis sheet is established and allows the author to have help to complete his manuscript before the next phase, which is the correction of the text.
