Once again, he seeks beta readers.

It’s time for the next stage in preparing this manuscript for publication: beta readers!

We already have one volunteer, someone who’s never read for us before, and that’s good, because this story is a bit different from everything else the author has written so far.

But I’ve been thinking: How can we get a few more?

…Grace just said, ‘Maybe you should bribe them with being Tuckerized or something.’

Sure, why not? Beta read my clone-sibling’s novel I Won’t Cry for Yesterday, and you (or rather, an alternate-universe version of you) can be a background character in one of the upcoming novels set in Geoffrey’s home universe. Wouldn’t it be nice to know that, if you lived in a world where the feral plague killed more than ninety percent of all humans, you’d not only survive but get the earliest version of the vaccine, the one with… interesting side effects? ūüôā




About Thomas Weaver

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have eight cats. I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

  1. How long is the story and how soon do you need it read? I’ve always wanted to beta read and I haven’t read any of your clone’s work.
