As a supplement to the Beta-Read kit that beta readers will be receiving, an exclusive Beta forum will be available, where readers can connect over ideas and start unique threads, post video blogs on their interpretations, and share their reading progress. I will be using the Beta Read page and all of it's elements to share any updates on my end and keep up with your reading in a weekly Beta Read Video blog. The Company and Beta Read pages will be exclusive for beta readers and password protected. Please provide your email on my contact page if you wish to join the beta group with website previews and the potential to read the full manuscript--early participants will receive a signed copy of the novel after publication. You will note that I am creating amalynne.com, different from amalynneO.com, which is my current home base. All links and updates will be emailed to those who have been invited to the Beta Read event.
Below are some early notes for the layout of the site I'm building for this beta. I'm so very excited to have the manuscript in the hands of my readers and I look forward to your feedback in all it's shapes and sizes.
