You will never know what people think about your book unless you request (and accept) feedback. While sometimes feedback isn’t always pleasant to hear, and tough to swallow, it’s still important and valuable, since after all, you are trying to appeal to the reader.
Think of negative feedback as constructive criticism on the plot, character, dialogue, and even grammar. You may think that everything you write is amazing, but you don’t want to be the only person reading your book! Don’t forget that while your family and friends would love to help you out, they may not always be the best critics. You might want to find someone you don’t know who will give an honest opinion, whether it’s good or bad.
There are several ways to access beta readers in your personal network. This article recommends using Write On By Kindle where you can post a few pages or an entire manuscript. You can also ask specific questions to readers to get specific feedback. Other sites include Wattpad, SheWrites (for females only, sorry!), and a few others.
