Beta Reader Management for Authors

is an easy-to-use online app to manage all your beta reader feedback.

Less time organizing,
more time writing.

BetaBooks makes it easier than ever to organize and present your novel to readers.

It's all about feedback,
and you're in control.

Get inline reactions, chapter-by-chapter, or questionnaires only. BetaBooks lets you decide what works best for you.

See the big picture
like never before.

Sort and filter your feedback by reader, chapter, or keyword, turn it into your personal todo list and get your book done.

BetaBooks is the world's first software designed specifically to solve authors' feedback management problems:

A safe and easy way to share your manuscript

Readers get secure, private access that you can revoke at any time, and you get to quit worrying about file formats and reader tech support.

Know exactly who is reading

No more wondering if people are reading, you'll know how far each reader has read and when they last looked at your book.

Save your feedback AND your inbox.

All your feedback is safely stored and organized in BetaBooks so you never have to hunt for file attachments in emails again.

This app has revolutionized beta reading for me. I’m spreading the word.

Jane Steen, author of The House of Closed Doors series

I'm a full-time author so I don't have time to deal with things like managing dozens of Word documents with my beta readers. BetaBooks simplifies the entire process and saves me an enormous amount of time so I can actually focus on my writing.

Mike Kraus, author of The Final Dawn series

I was able to get feedback from three different people on three different stories last night. I could never have that kind of turnaround with email or even Google Docs. Each reader being able to login and see things queued up for them with exactly what I need done makes it a better flow for them and for me.

Kelli Fitzpatrick, author of The Sunwalkers.

BetaBooks has made the beta reading process so much easier on me and my readers. Your web app is one of those solutions which get me excited: clean, concise, and meant for the user! Thank you for your vision.

Markus McDowell, author of To and Fro Upon the Earth

I can't tell you guys how much BetaBooks has slipped into my daily life. I've never felt more "on top of" sorting through all this feedback, able to see the patterns I sensed present in feedback. I think y'all have changed my writing life for good!

JR Creaden, author of Forward Remorse

BetaBooks has been splendid so far, I've already gotten way more feedback than I expected and I love how it is all being tracked separately per reader, rather than in one enormous Google Doc or something. Well done!

Bill Powell, author of Your Awesome Memory

The Beta Books review tools are fantastic for managing such a tidal wave of feedback. The ability to quickly categorize feedback as To Do/Consider/Ignore, and the resulting ability to see what was important for any specific chapter, has made the hard slog of editing so much easier.

– Andrew & Paul

P.S. (Paul) It's really terrifying to write intro text on a website for authors.

P.P.S (Andrew) Only because you splice your commas. Don't worry, I fixed them.

P.P.P.S. (Paul) Really? There will definitely be typos and grammatical errors on this site, and you know we're going to hear about them.

P.P.P.P.S. (Andrew) No big deal, we'll just write nice apology emails, people will understand.

P.P.P.P.P.S. (Paul) Dude, we'll still have to *write* to *writers*, how are you not getting this?
