Beta Reader signup for TfaP!

Yep, you read that right.  I’m looking for Beta Readers!

I realize I haven’t even released A Portal for Your Thoughts (Tales of Lentari #3) and here I am, asking for volunteers to read through TfaP (ToL4).  Don’t worry.  I won’t be asking anyone to read through this until ToL3 has been officially released, especially since it’s the direct followup.  So no worries there.

What exactly are you signing up for?  Well, if chosen, I’ll need you to read through an advance copy of my next book, in pdf form.  I will also provide a blank Excel worksheet which you’d use to note mistakes.  What kind of mistakes?  They are as follows:

  • Typos
  • Grammatical issues
  • Continuity errors
  • Gaps in the story
  • WTF moments…

Trust me, as previous beta readers will attest, I am prone to all manner of mistakes.  I know the list goes on but in essence that’s what I’d need you to do.  Also, I need to make certain you don’t have any qualms about giving critique.  I can handle good and bad critique so you wouldn’t have to worry about hurting my feelings.

Still interested?  Still want to give me a hand?  Well, I’d appreciate it!  Leave a comment below to let me know you want to sign up!  Thanks for the interest!

Don’t want to miss when A Portal for Your Thoughts is released?  Sign up for my newsletter!  The Daily Scroll will keep you apprised of all things Lentarian, including (but not limited to) book releases, contests, giveaways, news, insight into future titles, and so on.



  • Thanks for the interest in being a beta reader! I can always use more eyes checking out the story to make sure it’s as clean and professional as I can get it.

    Keep an eye on the blog. That’s where I’ll post the beta reader signups!

  • I’d love to be a beta reader!

  • Hi, Conni!

    Who says I didn’t? 🙂 Athos made the promise to DualTree. You better believe he’s upholding his end of the arrangement, much to his chagrin.

  • I am an avid reader of all types of literature, and as such was pleasantly surprised to find myself caught up in the escapades of your characters. However, I was curious as to why you did not hold the two brothers, Lukas father Venk and Athos accountable for planting the trees they so promised the ‘double rooted tree’ they would plant?

  • Hi, Melissa! Thx for the interest! The beta reader signup for this particular book has already passed, unfortunately, but I am in no way done writing books. In fact, I’m predicting I’ll have at least one, maybe two, more titles released this year.

    As soon as I’m ready to give my next manuscript to the beta readers I’ll post a request here and on Facebook for volunteers! I hope you sign up!

  • I am a serious sci fi / fantasy reader. I would love to be a beta reader.

  • If you’re still looking for beta readers I’d love to help. I write reports for a living and am (in)famous for being obsessive about spelling and grammar!

  • I would love being 1 of your Beta readers. I love your books and hope you write many more.

  • I would love to be a beta reader for you.

  • Hi there! Umm, I can’t say that I’ve heard of Pentatonic.

  • I would love to be a beta reader. I spend my weekends reading books, and when I pick up one of yours I go cover to cover in two days. Love the world of Pentatonic.

  • Beta reader; what a dream come true. Having previously been an arts and article editor for a line of magazine publications, I can’t think of any other genre that would be more fun. Added bonus: I love your work! No sense taking up your time and space here, but if your interest is piqued, just let me know and I would be honored. (I also live just ‘down the road’.)


  • I’d love to be a beta reader! I mark all of the above in my Kindle as I read anyway.
    I could be a betta reader,but that would just be scales.

  • Always a pleasure to Beta read for you Jeff. Long may it continue. xx

  • I would like to be a beta reader for you. I can give you my college background in newspaperclasses and four years on my college’s newspapers. I was journalism student of the year. It gives one a critical eye when reading, sometimes too critical. I can’t read and enjoy books with typos, misused words, and misspelled words.

  • If you need people I’m always happy to take a look. It’ll be fun to get back into Lentari.

  • Would love to be a beta reader. I promise to be thorough but fair. Thanks…Michele

  • Love to sign up.

  • I’d love to read for you again!
