Thank you for your interest in becoming a Beta Reader for Orinda Rising.

I am excited to embark on this important step of the pre-publication process. Your feedback will be vital in shaping the final version of this book.

As a Beta Reader, I am looking for feedback on the enjoyment of the story, characters & their development, and thematic elements of Orinda Rising. There will also be a few illustrations in the early chapters, and your feedback on those would be welcome as well. Do not worry about spelling or grammatical errors, though if you see them and want to take note, please feel free.

With 75,711 words, I anticipate the average reader will spend 7-10 hours reading the draft and submitting feedback.

I will be compiling feedback at the end of August 2023, though exceptions can be made to extend that into September if necessary.

After filling out the intake form below, I will contact you within 24 hours with more details. Please note that filling out the form does not guarantee your position as a Beta Reader.
