FB groups to request feedback from readers? Suggestions?
« on: January 13, 2021, 02:43:31 pm »
I'm looking to get some feedback from romance readers regarding a book title.

Most groups on fb, don't seem to accommodate for this in their rules. Any groups do allow for this type of feedback?

Would love to hear some suggestions.

    Have you looked for beta readers?

    If you are a part of any romance writer groups on Facebook, you could ask there. Romance writers are also romance readers and would probably have some good feedback for you.

    What type of romance? What heat level?  There are a lot of groups on Facebook.

    That's because they would very likely be slammed by authors who all want to use those groups as a source of free beta readers, and that is not why those groups exist.

    You would likely do a lot better to search for groups that are actually devoted to beta reading. Or you could hire some beta readers. There are people who offer that service right here on KBoards. Or, if you have a mailing list, maybe you could send out an email asking if any of your fans would like a free copy of your next book in exchange for some feedback.
